We all know that the Saints originally drafted Ricky Williams in the NFL. What MLB drafted Ricky as a baseball prospect?

Nope. Good thought though, that being his hometown and all.

Man you got me on this one. How about the Rangers?

Sounds like you're stumped.

Ricky was originally drafted by the Expos, but subsequently had his rights traded to the Rangers. The Expos picked him mostly because they could get some cash out of sending his rights away.

I was half right, lucky guess.

Sorry, but Ricky was originally drafted by the PHILLIES. He was then taken by the Expos in the rule 5 draft. I have a newspaper clipping of him in the Phillies minor league system without the dreads.
