Draft mistake

With the fifth pick in the 1992 baseball draft, the Reds picked Chad Mottola; with the sixth pick, the Yankees chose Derek Jeter.

Though the end of 2005, Mottola had 21 big league hits; Jeter had 1,936.


(And Jeter's number does not include his post-season hits or the first-inning homer he hit tonight.)
