When: 1999, Phenix City, Ala.

When he went pro: Before Rasmus retired following the 2018 season, he was a strong journeyman outfielder who is probably best known for a pair of seasons playing for the Houston Astros. Before that he was a star for the Alabama squad which captured the U.S. crown at the LLWS before falling to a team from Osaka, Japan in 1999. One other fun trivia note? Rasmus was the player selected with the compensatory draft pick the Boston Red Sox sent the St. Louis Cardinals for signing shortstop Edgar Renteria following the 2004 World Series between the two teams.
