Golden Tate has Top Pot caper, but no top pick
Posted by Danny O'Neil
Seahawks rookie Golden Tate was chosen by the San Francisco Giants in the 50th and final round of the Major League Baseball draft. He played center field for Notre Dame's baseball team, and this is the second time he has been taken in the baseball draft. He was chosen in the later rounds by the Arizona Diamondbacks coming out of high school.
Now, let's be clear that this doesn't open up a new career path or anything for Tate. There are a lot of hopes and prayers that teams take late in drafts. I remember one year the Mariners chose Mike Hargrove's son was picked.
For the record, Tate was 1,518 with a bullet, the eighth-to-last player chosen in the draft. So he's got that going for him, which is nice.
