Top baseball prospect, Grant Desme, retires to enter priesthood


Back in 2007, Grant Desme was a second-round pick by the Oakland A's, signing for a $432,000 bonus.

Now Deseme is leaving the A's organization to join the priesthood.

Last year the 23-year old enjoyed a breakout season. FoxSports' John Paul Morosi reports that "He batted .288 with 31 home runs and 89 RBIs in 131 games last year. Then he starred in the Arizona Fall League, where some of the game's top prospects compete each year. "
