New Trier alum Ben Brecht saw his childhood dream come true June 11, when the Tampa Bay Rays selected the University of California-Santa Barbara left-handed pitcher in the fifth round of the Major League Baseball Draft.
"I have believed it since I was six years old. Seriously," Brecht said about when he started to think he could get drafted.
