The MLB Draft is nearly in the books. By the end, the Houston Astros will possibly add over 40 players with their 2017 class. These 40-plus draftees, of course, have social media accounts to capture the moment and spread their gratitude for the possibility of playing professional baseball. Let’s take a look:
Such an exciting day! So many people that helped me along the way. It's been a dream come true to be selected in the @MLBDraft— Jacob Bukauskas (@JBukauskas22) June 13, 2017
Thank you to the @astros for giving me the opportunity to fulfill my dreams!— Joe Perez (@_jperez22) June 13, 2017
Perez apparently got the news in bed. No shirt on, gold chain. Is there anything more Florida than that? Kidding Joe, you do you.
So thankful for the @astros drafting me. It's an unreal feeling and so thankful right now.— corbin (@martin_corbin) June 13, 2017
JJ had the best video of the night. There is nothing more personal moment than seeing family and friend surrounding a laptop attached to a TV with the draft feed on. The Arizona gear in the background is a nice touch.
Thank you to the @astros and everyone who made today possible, I can't express how grateful I am. Ready to get my career started.— Peter Solomon (@hundopete) June 14, 2017
Alex Bregman had great things to say about Michael Papierski
Well in life you can have some ups and downs but you just have to keep your faith and trust God has a plan. Thank you to everyone that has followed me throughout my career and will continue to follow me. For those out there that have the same dream as I do keep pushing and never let a obstacle stand in your way.
