1995 #1 Draft Pick – Darin Erstad

In 1995 we have a very grindy pick. Darin Erstad was one that surprised me. This draft actually featured two number one picks. Pat Burrell was taken in the 43rd round, but did not sign. He would become the 1st pick in the 1998 draft. Darin would go on to play in the Majors and be successful, but I would guess that he did not play up to the #1 pick expectations. His year in Chicago was one to forget.

This picture was taken on Polish American Night in 2007. I do not have a bunch of pictures of Darin so I had to use one of him standing at first taken from the upper deck. It actually turned out good though. If he only had some dirt on his uniform you could see how grindy he was.

Here is the complete list of round one picks from 1995. Some big names are on this list. One other person I found interesting was Tom Brady. He was drafted by the Expos in the 18th round. He went to Michigan, and was later drafted in the sixth round of the NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. We all know how that turned out. I have been checking out the Sox picks in the draft, and they have all been bad so far with the exception of Baines.
