Tom Brady is widely considered the greatest football player of all time. Most people know his story of emerging from the 6th round of the NFL Draft to become the most decorated quarterback ever to play the game. Many don’t realize that he was also quite the baseball player.
In 1995, Tom Brady had to make a choice. He could have tried his hand at professional baseball, where he was considered an enticing prospect. Instead, he committed to playing football at the University of Michigan. The rest is history.
Tom Brady was drafted in the 18th round of the 1995 Major League Baseball draft. The team who selected him, the Montreal Expos, doesn’t even exist anymore. The franchise became the Washington Nationals in 2005.
Brady recently joined his old friend Bruce Gronkowski to take some batting practice. It looks like Tom can still swing a bat. Brady included a hilarious caption with the video.
“Got some cuts in this morning. Wonder if that Expos offer is still on the table…”
Baseball might not be in Tom Brady’s future, but he does have an excellent retirement gig lined up. Tom will make nearly $40 million annually as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports once his playing days are over. It’s not the Expos, but it’s good to work if you can get it.
