2003 #1 Draft Pick – Delmon Young
Delmon started his career off badly in the minors getting a bad reputation for altercations with two umpires. He has since proven himself to be a solid ballplayer who currently plays alongside the 2001 #1 pick Joe Mauer. He is the younger brother of former MLB player Dmitri Young.
This is not the best picture of Delmon, but it is the best that I had on file. I took it while the Twins were warming up this April.
Here is how the first round looked in 2003:
Looking at the top 30 I was surprised at the number of players on the list that suited up in a White Sox uniform at one time or another. Carlos Quentin, Brian Anderson, David Aardsma, and Jon Danks are all 1st round picks. Two of those players are currently on the Sox.
