Utility Derek said...

dude was drafted by the twins. What threw it off was that he was a pitcher. Also, this was an older version of name that person.

Booker, who batted .315 and was a skillful shortstop and an All-America as a senior, was named Pac-10 Co-Player of the Year in 1980.(...)Booker, also a first team NCAA District 8 selection as a senior, went on to play in the Major Leagues with the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies from 1987 to 1991
