Kenny Rogers was one of the most dominant pitchers of the late 1990s and mid 2000s.
Rogers is a four-time All-Star, a five-time Gold Glove award winner and a 1996 World Series champion.
He also pitched a perfect game on July 28, 1994.
But in high school, Rodgers did not play baseball until his senior year.
He hit .375 as a right fielder during that lone season and was eventually drafted in the 39th round by the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers immediately decided to convert him to a pitcher due to the strength of his throwing arm and the fact that Rogers was left handed.
So a guy who didn't even pitch in high school went on to pitch a perfect game in the MLB. Go figure.
