Don't ever recall a 1st rounder coming out of a high school in Missouri.
Max Scherzer from MU is the 11th pick in the 2006 draft. He is a RHP. You are right, very few kids been picked from high school. Especially from Missouri. But It doesn't mean it will not happen in the future.
Why very few kids drafted from Missour? I don't know. maybe this is a unlucky place, should I move out of here now?? Maybe not.
I think football or basketball are the most favorite sports for most talented kids in Mid-West. If they all chose to play baseball, my son should have no chance to play baseball in a college.
