NFL legend Tom Brady confirmed his retirement after spending 23 seasons in the league, this past Wednesday. The seven-time NFL champion is retiring at the age of 45. However, he had announced his retirement last year also, before deciding to recant and come back. Some think it may happen again.

On his social media handles, Brady posted a video informing the world of his retirement.

While Tom Brady’s name has become intrinsically linked to football, it is worth noting that before earning the moniker of ‘GOAT’ in NFL, Brady used to play baseball also.

In college, the future football great gave baseball a go as well. He was chosen by the Montreal Expos, who moved to Washington in 2004, in the 18th round of the 1995 Draft.

Brady evidently decided against pursuing his baseball career at Michigan and switched to collegiate football instead. After seven Super Bowl titles and several NFL records, the decision is more than vindicated.

While the now 45-year-old gave up baseball, he was nonetheless lauded by the Washington Nationals for his retirement.

Tom Brady’s MLB draft story

Tom Brady went to Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, California. He was a talented baseball player who challenged future MLB star Pat Burrell.

As his graduation date approached, numerous MLB organizations indicated an interest in signing the multi-talented athlete. Brady was noted for his powerful hitting ability and composure in the catcher’s box.

Growing concerns over the team’s future in Montreal were another issue facing Malone’s team. The Expos ended up moving to Washington and changing their name to the Nationals in less than 10 years.

In the 18th round of the 1995 MLB Draft, the Expos selected Tom Brady, who had just completed a high school campaign marked by extraordinary athleticism. The future legend decided against signing a contract with the Expos after learning that he had been given the opportunity to play football at the University of Michigan.

The Montreal Expos’ general manager, Kevin Malone, took a particular interest in the young Brady. He even declared that he had the ability to go down in history as one of the best catchers.
