D.J. and Dustin Peterson were both taken on Day 1 of the Major League Baseball draft.

D.J. Peterson, a college third baseman out of New Mexico, was the 12th overall pick by the Mariners.

Dustin Peterson, a shortstop from Gilbert (Ariz.) High School, went to the Padres in the second round at pick No. 50.

"It's unbelievable," D.J. Peterson said. "He's my best friend and my brother. We've shared more moments than anyone I know, and I just feel very blessed to be doing this with him and having him by my side. I'm very fortunate to have a little brother as talented as him."
