Miami (Dade) Baseball Alumni

A discussion at work, about collegiate sports in Florida, had me saying that Miami Dade Community College was a really good baseball school. With a little digging on baseball-reference, something completely pointless and quirky popped up.

MDC has produced a bunch of professional ball players.

Of MDC's six alumni to amass more than 9 rWAR in their careers, four of them were Top 10 overall picks, and the other two were outside of the Top 1,000.

Check it out:

There's a good chance we got a future MLB star in this photo.
