Not being drafted can have an impact on your psyche

The Albany Times-Union has an article on Tri-City's undrafted players, such as Neiko Johnson, Garrett Bullock, and Ryan McCurdy.

"That kind of makes you want to work harder just to show you're really good. You could have been drafted, but it didn't happen. You still have the opportunity."

"They (the teams) don't have nearly as much invested in you, so in the game and off-the-field stuff, you definitely have to be beyond and above everybody else to move up,"

It won't be a problem, says manager Stubby Clapp:
"Everybody's going to get an opportunity here. When his number is called, I hope he performs."
