Welcome to the Blue, Brandon Dixon - Dodgers 3rd Round Draft Pick, an Accomplished Noodler and a Fantasy Card for Him

With the Dodgers 3rd Round Pick of the 2013 Amateur Draft (92nd overall), they choose Arizona Wildcat Brandon Dixon.  He's a 6'1" third baseman who won the PAC-12 collegiate batting championship and was a member of the 2012 College World Series Champion University of Arizona Wildcats.  Dixon batted .369 with 6 home runs in 57 games for Arizona this past season.  In fact, 2013 was a breakout year for him.

Per Daniel Berk at the Arizona Daily Star:
"I've always had that goal and dream to go out and play professional baseball," Dixon said Wednesday. "I'm excited to see what happens."
Well son, you're a Dodger now!

Per his Wildcat biography he once aspired to work for the Secret Service and counts Noodling as one of his hobbies.

I'm sure you're wondering like I was, what is noodling? 

Well, noodling is catching catfish with his bare hands.  Yeah, you read that right.
