Royals have something to "Crow" about
The Royals landed a highly touted prospect in the first round today, and the pitcher was in their own backyard. University of Missouri product Aaron Crow, who went to Washburn Rural High School in Topeka, was the 12th overall pick. Crow went 13-0 with Mizzou as a junior in 2008 to earn Big 12 Pitcher of the Year honors. He was selected by Washington last year, but did not sign. Crow has pitched for the Fort Worth Cats in the independent American Assocation in 2008 and 2009.
Royals team photographer Chris Vleisides was in the “war room” during today’s first round. Here are some exclusive pictures.
