Earlier than Dell Curry turned an NBA 3-point specialist, he was really a university pitcher for Virginia Tech with massive league potential. The Baltimore Orioles chosen Curry within the 14th spherical of the 1985 MLB Draft and wished him to go away college for rookie camp. Nonetheless, Dell’s baseball goals had been rapidly shut down by his dad.
(By way of The Rex Chapman Present):
“I used to be drafted by the Orioles they usually wished me to go away college and go to rookie camp. My dad mentioned ‘What the hell is improper with you? You ain’t going nowhere! You’re staying in school and enjoying basketball.’ A whole lot of my dad’s buddies would let you know I used to be higher as a baseball pitcher than I used to be at basketball early on.”
