The Chicago Cubs concluded the second day of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft yesterday by accumulating a total of 30 selected players. The third and final day of the draft is today with rounds 31-50. They took some legacy devices by selecting talented players with talented genes- including the offspring of hockey’s “the great one” Wayne Gretzky and 1982 #1 overall MLB pick Shawon Dunston.

But before we get to those guys…

…The Cubs selected infielder Daniel Vogelbach out of Bishop Verot High School in Fort Myers , Florida in the second round (68th overall) and outfielder Ezekiel DeVoss out of the University of Miami ( Fla. ) in the third round (98th overall).

Go here for more on Vogelbach, who kind of resembles Chunk from “The Goonies.” Of course the kid with the truffle shuffle could never hit a 508 home run. He is committed to the University of Florida so we’ll see what happens.
