There are few moments better for a baseball player than the day they are drafted. For A.J. Bregman, the moment became even more special when his older brother, Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman, revealed the news that he’d been drafted by Houston.

Alex Bregman, the No.2 overall pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, got to share the news with his brother before the Astros game on Wednesday.
A.J, a left-handed pitcher out of Albuquerque Academy High School, will now have quite the decision to make after being drafted in the 35th round by Houston.
The teenager must now choose whether he wants to join professional baseball out of high school and be in the same organization as his brother or stick with his commitment to the University of New Mexico and play baseball for them next season.
Either way, it’s a great moment to see the brothers share this day together.
