Major League outfielder Chris Dickerson dropped by the ESPN America TV studio in London during a recent trip to London as part of the European Big League Tour. We managed to get a few words from Chris on life as a New York Yankee and what is was like to be drafted & traded.
And just to show how transitory life as an MLB player can be … Chris changed teams again – as he signed for the Orioles in January. Watch the videos below with Chris wearing his Yankees uniform …
VIDEO: On being drafted – in 2000 – out of high school by the Yankees – and turning them down!
Chris went on to play three seasons of college ball for the Nevada Wolfpack, before being drafted by the Reds in 2003 and he made his Major League debut in 2008.
VIDEO: On being traded from the Reds to Brewers for his childhood hero Jim Edmonds – then being traded again – to the Yankees.
Chris was with the Brewers for just 25 games before joining the Yankees in 2011, eleven years after being ‘drafted’ by the Bronx Bombers.
