It may not bring the same fame that comes with the NFL Draft's final spot (and no free trip to Newport Beach, Calif.), but the 2010 baseball Mr. Irrelevant is Western Kentucky catcher Matt Rice, who was selected with the 1,525th pick of the 2010 draft by the Yankees.
Rice had a very solid junior season for the Hilltoppers this year–he led the team with a .369 batting average and a .446 on-base percentage while slugging .585. He was also named a second-team academic all-American and was a semifinalist for the Johnny Bench award, given to the nation's top college catcher.
Last year's Mr. Irrelevant, Alibay Barkley did sign and hit .389 in limited action (18 at-bats) with the Angels Arizona League club last year.
