Catching up on back issues of Baseball America (yes I get the dead-tree version -- sorry!)... Yorvis, son of Yorvit, ranks No. 1 on the list of Most Intriguing Draft Backgrounds. 

How come?

 "Yorvis was kidnapped in Venezuela when he was 11 years old and held for a $500,000 ransom."

He was drafted last year in the 20th round (suggesting he moved to the US when he was 12).
