Eckstein was a 19th round pick in the 1997 draft by the Boston Red Sox who eventually released the undersized infielder.
Eckstein went on to play four years with the Anaheim Angels, winning the World Series in 2002. In 2005 he signed with St. Louis as a free agent and a year later was back on a World Series winner, this time earning MVP honors. He just finished the 2009 season with the San Diego Padres and has signed with the Padres for another season, which will be his 10th in the big leagues.
Last week I had the chance to have Eckstein on my Gainesville radio program and wanted to share it with you guys.
