FROM THE BASEBALL CHRONOLOGY
»June 2, 1994: The NY Mets select Florida State P Paul Wilson with the first pick in the amateur draft. OF Ben Grieve is selected 2nd by the Oakland Athletics. The Brewers Sal Bando, a former ASU third baseman, picks another ASU 3rd sacker, Antone Williamson, with Milwaukee's the 4th pick overall. The Brewers do find a good 5th round pick in Steve Woodard. The Marlins use the 5th overall on Josh Booty, rated the top high school QB in the nation. Booty will sign with the Fish for $1.6 million, hit .198 in four years in the minors, have a cup of coffee with the Marlins, and return to college football. The Royals take Jose Rosado on the 12th round. Boston ends up with the best draft, taking Nomar Garciaparra (1st round, 12th pick), Brian Rose (3rd), Brian Barkley (5th), Damien Sapp (10th), Donnie Sadler (11th), and Carl Pavano (18th). The Twins pick Corey Koskie on the 26th round.
»May 27, 1997:
Kansas City takes a 2-0 lead into the ninth before the visiting A's -- held to one hit for eight-plus innings by Jose Rosado -- get a two-run homer from Mark McGwire and a solo shot from Scott Spiezio to take the lead. Pinch-hitter Scott Cooper's homer in the bottom of the ninth then ties it. The A's bat around in the 10th, scoring five runs, and the Royals three-run answer falls short as the A's win, 8–6.
»July 3, 1998: Manny Ramirez's two home runs are Cleveland's only hits against KC pitcher, Jose Rosado, but they're enough to give the Tribe a 2–1 win over the Royals.
