Michael Young Bio-
Interestingly, when chosen as a 25th round draft pick in the 1994 MLB draft for the Baltimore Orioles, Young preferred to go to college although three years later when a 1997 5th round draft pick by the Toronto Blue Jays, he agreed.  Even so, he was traded in 2000 to the Texas Rangers, which lead to many achievements.

For instance, Young placed second in fielding with a .988 percentage in 2002, he was ranked third in the league with 204 hits in 2003, as well as led all second baseman with a .306 batting average, and was the AL batting champion in 2005.  Happy with his performance, the Texas Rangers offered him an $80 million extension contract in 2006, which will take Young to the end of the 2013 MLB season.  He was also chosen for the US 2006 World Baseball Classic roster, MLB All-Star game, and after hitting his game-winning two run triple during the ninth inning in that championship, he was the recipient of the Ted Williams MLB All-Star Game MVP Award.  Young continued to perform with the Rangers and during the 2008 MLB All-Star Game he drove in the game-winning RBI.

However, disgruntled with the way the Rangers had handled his contract, Young requested to be traded but this decision is still pending with the Rangers wanting to use him as the main designated hitter and utility infielder.  Online websites to include eBay are the best place to find a Michael Young rookie card in mint condition.
