Tom Brady announced his retirement, this time “for good,” on Wednesday after 23 seasons in the NFL.
But, before committing to a football career, Brady once considered a career in baseball. He was drafted in the 18th round of the 1995 MLB draft as a catcher by the Montreal Expos, who relocated to Washington in 2004 and became the Nationals.
Obviously, Brady decided not to continue a career in baseball and instead committed to Michigan for college football. After seven Super Bowl titles and myriad NFL records, the rest is history.
Nevertheless, the Nationals congratulated the quarterback on his retirement, while also noting Brady was the last athlete drafted by the Expos to remain active in professional sports.
