Bob Horner was the 1977 College World Series MVP in 1977. He was the number 1 pick in the 1978 draft and never played a game in the minors. He was drafted by the Braves on June 8, 1978. He signed the contract on the 14th, and on the 16th he made his MLB debut. In his 1st game he homered off future Hall of Famer, Burt Blyleven. With 23 homers in only 89 games, it was no surprise when he was voted NL Rookie of the Year.
