Domonic Brown

Baseball Player from United States of America

Domonic Brown Domonic Larun Brown (born September 3, 1987 in Zephyrhills, Florida) is an outfielder in the Philadelphia Phillies organization. Brown was named the Phillies' top prospect in 2009 and the top prospect in all of Major League Baseball in 2010 by Baseball America, and has been described as a five-tool player. He is officially listed as standing 6 feet 5 inches (1.96 m) tall and weighing 200 pounds (91 kg). Brown was selected by the Phillies in the 20th round of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft out of Redan High School in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Since he moved to the Atlanta area from Florida, Brown had "fallen off some teams' radars" prior to the draft. He participated in a private batting session with Phillies representatives at a local park, and after making one adjustment to his swing, scouting director Marti Wolever "'couldn't believe what [they] were seeing'". Brown planned to attend the University of Miami to play wide receiver for the Hurricanes, but the Phillies offered him a $200,000 signing bonus to choose baseball instead. After the draft, Brown was assigned to the Phillies' Gulf Coast League (GCL) affiliate, where he batted .214 and collected one home run, seven runs  ( Wikipedia article )
