Justin Upton – SP
Justin will make the list once again tomorrow when his #1 draft pick card is released. He was taken by the Diamondbacks in the 2005 draft as an overall #1 pick. We were fortunate in South Bend to get to see him play for a season before he moved on to bigger and better things.
Justin had great potential in South Bend, and towards the end of his stay he really started to show it. One of the things that I love about this picture is the fact that Upton’s helmet is taped together. Being the #1 overall pick you would think that they could come up with a helmet that was whole for the man.
