We understand if you haven't been glued to your computer monitoring the later rounds of the Major League Baseball draft. It's just...a lot of rounds.

One of the more notable picks -- coming in the 40th round -- was that of Asaad Ali. The 18-year-old catcher from beautiful Niles, Mich. is the adopted son of boxing legend Muhammad Ali.

So, what about Ali's tape of the tape?

He weighs in at 224 pounds, stands 5-10 and hit .367 with 2 home runs and 18 RBI this season.
