Default much pressure...I know I'm gonna screw this draft up somehow; but here goes.

With the 2nd overall selection in the all time MLB draft, Killericon selects Right Fielder Hank Aaron.

The all time home run king's not a bad 2nd overall pick, is he?

Exhibiting an understated style that became his trademark, Hank Aaron became the all-time home run champion via one of the most consistent offensive careers in baseball history. In addition to his 755 home runs, he also holds the major league record for total bases, extra-base hits and RBI. Aaron was named the 1957 National League MVP, won three Gold Gloves for his play in right field and was named to a record 24 All-Star squads.
