This just popped into my head, but how awesome were the Yankees 1990 amateur and regular drafts?
Rivera was signed by the Yankees organization in 1990 as an amateur free agent in Panama.. The greatest closer ever, 5X WS champion, 13X All Star, All time Saves leader.
Posada was drafted in the 24th round... 5 X WS champion, 5X All Star
Pettitte was drafted in the 22nd round of the 1990 draft. 5X WS champ, 3X all star, winningest pitcher in Playoff history.
If you think about it, in baseball you hope one of your draft picks pan out, The Yankees had 3 all stars, one being the greatest of all time at his position.
Shane Spencer and Ricky Ledee were also drafted, who were good role players. and Ledee turned into David Justice.
