I grew up with a set of identical twins in some of my classes. I noticed that in many cases they not only shared physical features but similar likes, skills and traits. This is certainly true for David and Ryan Ledbetter, twin brothers who were each selected in the 2013 MLB Draft. What makes this even more special? They were both drafted by the same team – the Texas Rangers.
The brothers are both right-handed pitchers, though David profiles as a stronger pitcher due to his outstanding control and incredible change-up. David was drafted 99th overall, while his brother was the 580th player called.
It is these stories that make the MLB Draft even that much more interesting to follow. The only thing that could have topped this is had they been drafted for the Minnesota … (wait for it) … Twins!
