There's an avid fisherman, a drummer and a saxophone player. A fourth loves board games, one enjoys bowling and another proudly says he admires Kanye West.
Given a day to prepare, prized Houston infield prospect Carlos Correa delivered in a big way.
Mark Appel received high praise from MLB commissioner Bud Selig on Wednesday when the No. 1 overall pick signed with the Houston Astros.
"It's my dream, it's my goal to get to big leagues and help the Astros be a winning club," he said. "I think about it every single day. When I wake up, when I go to sleep. I want to help them try to be the organization they used to be in the past."
"I was just focused," Correa said. "He told me I was going to start today."
