The Daily Journal has a piece about Kenny, Danny and Mikey Diekroeger's baseball careers--the two oldest having been drafted into Major League Baseball.
The Diekroeger brothers wreak havoc on sports media. And even MLB Network is not immune.
After it was announced Friday on the MLB Draft webcast that Danny Diekroeger had been selected in the 10th round by the St. Louis Cardinals, even the likes of juggernaut analysts Jonathan Mayo and Jim Callis had to backtrack on initially reading Kenny Diekroeger’s bio of having previously been drafted out of Menlo School.
The trio of brothers from Woodside have plenty in common to confuse. All have graduated from Menlo. Come the fall, all will have attended Stanford, as youngest brother Mikey Diekroeger embarks on his collegiate baseball career. And as of Friday, two have been drafted by MLB. That number could change when the draft concludes Saturday with rounds 11-40.
The trio may be from Woodside now, but they cut their baseball teeth here in B'game playing BYBA ball at Bayside Park, playing summer tournament ball including going to Cooperstown with the B'game teams. Now that summer is upon us, look for this year's tournament teams practicing and playing out at the Bayfront. You never know when you will be able to say "I saw him when.....".
