If you stand 6-5 and throw 90 mph there’s a chance you might have a future in baseball.
Those attributes led to Brainerd High School graduate Nick Anderson being drafted in the 32nd round of Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers June 6.
Anderson, who signed Monday, will be assigned to Rockford, Ill of the Frontier League.
“It’s something I’ve been looking forward to, and was hoping to have the possibility to experience,” Anderson said. “It just kind of gives me the opportunity to make a living out of it, to play the sport I love and get paid to do it and have the possibility to make big things out of it.”
