Chris Wallace didn't think he'd get taken so early

Former UH catcher Chris Wallace was taken in the 16th Round in last month's draft. The surprising part? He didn't think he'd go that early:

“I wasn’t really sure what was going to happen. I thought I was going to be drafted in the later rounds, so when I was taken in the 16th round, it was really a surprise because I didn’t think I would be taken that early. I grew up watching the Astros and I have always wanted to play for them. Now I have that opportunity, and it’s a dream come true.”
