Top Minor League Prospect to Enter Priesthood

Grant Desme, a top minor league prospect in the Oakland Athletics system, abruptly announced his retirement so he can study to become a priest.

Desme, who played the outfield, was the only minor leaguer to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases this season. He would be named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League in 2009.

Kevin Goldstein (no relation) summed it up nicely when he wrote, "Well, somebody's church softball team is gonna get WAY WAY better soon."
