Grant Desme

the minor leagues only 30/30 player last season is calling it quits.

Rotoworld wrote:A's outfield prospect Grant Desme has decided to end his baseball career in order to pursue the priesthood.

Desme, 23, was selected in the second round of the 2007 draft and enjoyed a breakout 2009 season, batting .288/.365/.568 with 31 home runs and 40 stolen bases in just 486 at-bats on two different Single-A levels. He almost certainly would have started the 2010 season with Double-A Midland.

I just read this. More power to someone who follows what they believe to be their true calling. Sucks for A's fans too. ;-D
