Astros draftee Brandon Wikoff went to the same high school as Jim Thome. In the 2009 draft another guy from Wikoff's high school was drafted.
If this guy makes the big leagues, he'll beat Saltalamacchia's record for a single name with the most letters. Salty's 14 letters is tied with a guy who took two names to get there...William Van Landingham. Schwindenhammer's name has 15 letters. I'm rooting for him.
