Article on Wikoff's selection by the Astros

Nice interview with 5th round selection Brandon Wikoff today. An excerpt, if you will...

I watched here in Madison in the clubhouse. We had a few guys here and my Dad. We were watching the Draft Tracker on the computer...my Dad saw my name and started yelling and then it got pretty crazy. Just a really exciting moment...The 5th round was a little higher than I thought...so that was good. I was really happy about that and about the Astros. Houston had scouted me and talked to me quite a few times so I was not too suprised by the Astros...Just really, really exciting. Truly a dream come true. Something I've wanted since I was a little boy.


Remember, if you are a draftee, get a picture of yourself holding the Astros County Proof of Citizenship and win a prize. Of course, if you'd like to answer a few questions, shoot an e-mail to astroscounty@hotmail.com.
