Baseball Player
    (December 26, 1971- )
    Born in Beaufort, North Carolina
    Pitcher for the Fort Lauderdale Yankees (Class A affiliate), Albany-Colonie Yankees (Class AA affiliate), Gulf Coast Yankees (Class A affiliate), Greensboro Bats (Class AA affiliate) and the Columbus Clippers (Class AAA affiliate)
    Drafted 1st overall by the New York Yankees in the 1990 Major League Baseball Draft
    Sentenced to 38 months in prison for cocaine trafficking (2012)
    He is the second first overall draft pick to never reach the majors, behind Steve Chilcott.
    His career was plagued by injuries and inconsistency.
    He hired Scott Boras as an agent, who asked for an inflated salary demand from the Yankees.
    He declined a request from the Yankees to work with a pitching instructor citing he was burnt out from pitching the previous season.
    Due to his financial issues, he was forced to move back in with his parents at age 40.
    He dislocated his shoulder and labrum throwing a haymaker at a man who attacked his brother in a fistfight (1993).
    Following the altercation, he struggled with control and velocity with his pitches.
    He was charged with misdemeanor child abuse after he left four of his daughters alone for an extended period of time (2005).
    He was arrested and charged for cocaine trafficking after he sold undercover narcotics officers a substantial amount over a seven month period (August, 2012).
    He was named after Brian Piccolo.
    He was considered one of the best high school prospects in the country by baseball pundits prior to his draft selection.
    George Steinbrenner thought highly enough of him to publicly state that the Yankees front office would be shot if they allowed him to leave as a free agent.
    He worked blue collar jobs following his retirement as a baseball player.
    He built his parents a house with the money he received from his initial signing bonus from the Yankees.
    He has a street named after him in his hometown of Beaufort, NC.
