With there 25th round selection in the all time MLB Draft The Greeley Grays select Bill Freehan C Tigers

The only American Leaguer to finish in the top three in MVP voting in both 1967 and 1968, Bill Freehan was a rock behind the plate. He was the best defensive catcher of his generation and he had a good bat to go with his glove. In the 1968 World Series he was on the receiving end of the famous play at the plate that resulted in Lou Brock being tagged out. After his playing career he helped tutor Lance Parrish and managed the University of Michigan baseball team. When Freehan retired he held major league marks for most putouts, chances and highest fielding percentage by a catcher
