Tom Brady, who will play in his sixth Super Bowl on Sunday, with drafted by the Montreal Expos in 1995, but opted to play football at Michigan.
Brady was once a talented left-handed-hitting catcher at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, California.
The Expos selected the then 17-year-old in the 18th round of the 1995 First-Year Player Draft.
Brady immediately impressed former Expos scout John Hughes, who now is with the Miami Marlins.
"You were like, 'Wow, this kind of fits the bill,'" Hughes said. "He could throw. He could receive well. He was a left-handed hitter who had some pull power."
The long-time scout believes Brady could have made it to the Major Leagues.
"I think he would have been a pro," Hughes said. "He had all the intangibles. He could throw, left-handed power. There is no reason to think this guy couldn't have been a big league catcher."
