Lastly—and so we can wrap up this tangent—let's look at the last unconventional team, the only one to pick a player that wasn't an SP or SS.
- 1/77: with the second-to-last pick of the first round, the #MarinerosBAR :marineros: take 27-year-old CF Rubén Mendoza. He'll retire in 1882 with:
- over a decade of 135 OPS+ hitting;
- three league-leading run campaigns;
- two league WAR titles;
- an absurd 80.8% stolen base rate, leading the league twice;
- a surprisingly decent fielding career.
