Congratulations to Mike Piazza on being selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame! Ken Griffey, Jr. is notable for being the first #1 overall pick to be enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but Piazza is the lowest drafted player to make the Hall. Famously drafted in the 62nd Round of the 1988 Draft as a favor from Tommy Lasorda to Piazza's dad, the story was that Mike was not cut out for the big leagues. He worked hard and made himself into a major leaguer, then a Superstar.
