38th Round pick Brad Propst was at a gas station

When the Astros selected pitcher Brad Propst in the 38th Round, he was at a gas station.

"This was a little bit of a surprise. I didn't expect to get picked by Houston. I was shocked. I was getting a little nervous because it was getting late in the draft. My dad called me and told me I got picked. I was at a gas station."

It looks as though he'll sign, as he will report to the Astros on Monday to learn where he'll be assigned. Propst:
"They're ready to get me going. It is a good feeling to get picked and to be able to keep playing baseball. This has always been a dream of mine, and it is good to get to pursue a dream."
