18 year old Manny Machado, the #1 draft pick of the Baltimore Orioles in 2010, who signed a $5.25 million contract, watches his Aberdeen IronBirds teammates the night before his debut with the team. The Orioles shortstop of the future reminds many of a young Alex Rodriguez.

The photo told me nothing about the story. I've got no idea who this fella is. I guess he's playing baseball.
