Adley Rutschman had an incredible day in Baltmore, Maryland Tuesday. He signs a record-setting contract for a #1 MLB draft pick. $8.1 Million dollar signing bonus. That according to mlb.com. He was also introduced to the Baltimore Media and I posted that news conference on this page so you can see the entire event. Adley was also given a chance to check out Camden Yards and was introduced to the crowd and received a warm ovation.
Where will he play now? The Baltimore Sun is reporting that he will probably wind up with the Aberdeen Ironbirds. The Ironbirds are a short-season Class A team in the New York-Penn league. They are located in Aberdeen, Maryland....not too far from Baltimore. The team is owned by Cal Ripken Jr.
