On Monday, the dreams of being drafted in the MLB Draft came true for shortstop Izaac Pacheco and left-handed pitcher Lael Lockhart Jr.

Both athletes went to Friendswood High School. Pacheco is a recent Mustang graduate who was selected first of the pair. With third pick in the second round (39th overall), the Detroit Tigers selected Pacheco. As Astros fans are familiar, former manager A.J. Hinch is now the manager for the Tigers.
