Tom Brady looks back on MLB career that wasn't

It's been a long time since Montreal had a baseball team, but it's been even longer since Tom Brady's path could have veered to the MLB instead of the NFL.

As a catcher, Tom was drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 1995 MLB draft in the 18th round, and the quarterback looked back on the 21-year-anniversary of the career that wasn't in a Facebook post on Thursday.

Though Tom was taken by the Expos before future Red Sox David Ross, Mike Lowell and Gabe Kapler, he – of course – did not sign, choosing instead to play football at Michigan. Five years later, Brady took part in a different draft, and we all know how that one worked out.

Who knows, maybe Tom could have been the greatest catcher to play the game. Lucky for the legacies of Johnny Bench, Carlton Fisk, Yogi Berra and Mike Piazza, we will never know. And let's just say we're happy to have him in the pocket and not behind home plate.
