Braves Quote For The Day ... 'Tony, Get Down Here'

If anyone asks you why you follow the MLB Draft, you can direct them to this story about the Atlanta Braves 13th-round pick, Tony Mueller:

When her cell phone rang Tuesday afternoon, Barb Mueller didn't give a second thought about who it might be.

Until she heard this: "This is Stu from the Atlanta Braves."

"Tony! Tony, get down here," Barb Mueller called to her son, Tony, who was watching the Major League Baseball draft on television on a different floor of their La Crosse home.

Stu Cann, a scout with the Braves organization, was calling for Tony Mueller, a standout outfielder/pitcher who had just completed his junior season at Winona State University.

Cann wanted to know if Mueller, a 20-year-old with seemingly deer-like speed, would sign if the Braves selected him in the upcoming 13th round of the First-Year Player Draft.

"I said, ‘If you're going to take me, I'll sign,'" Tony told Cann without hesitation.

And it gets better from there. Keep reading, you can't help but smile. This kid may quickly become a TC favorite.
