Kyle Long, who was a high school All-American baseball player, was drafted by the White Sox as a pitcher in 2008, but went to play college baseball for Florida State instead. After pitching at Florida State for two years, the Bears guard transferred to Saddleback College to play football then played under Chip Kelly at Oregon.

As baseball was one of Long’s first loves, he has many baseball players he admired as a kid. Before the All-Star Game, Long tweeted out a list of his favorite MLB players.


Long, being a left-handed pitcher, likes a lot of lefty athletes. Seven of the 15 players Long respected are lefty hitters.
