Not only is Anthony Santiago the first player in the history of the Mitchell (Conn.)

He finished his college career at Central Florida (as reader Ricky points out in the comments).

The first pick in last December's Rule 5 draft, Terry Doyle won the International League's pitcher-of-the-week award in early June, but he asked for his release—and got it—not long after so that he could sign a more lucrative deal with SoftBank in Japan.
