With the 1,521st pick, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim took first baseman Alibay Barkley of Washington HS in New York City. While he was the last pick of the draft, relevance can be found with Barkley.
First, he has good raw power. He was a participant in the 2009 International Home Run Derby in Tampa, which was won by Kennedy-Kenrick (Limerick, Pa.) High’s Christian Walker, a third baseman taken in the 49th round by the Dodgers. However, you may have heard, but uber-prospect Bryce Harper stole the show.
Also, Barkley hails from the same high school that produced one of the best hitters baseball has seen, Manny Ramirez. Ramirez was drafted out of Washington High in 1991.
