By Alabama News Network

Johnny Manziel and the sons of Cal Ripken Jr. and Mariano Rivera were just a few of the familiar names selected on the final day of the Major league Baseball draft.

Manziel, the Cleveland Browns quarterback, was taken Saturday by San Diego in the 28th round and listed as a shortstop for Texas A&M - although he never played for the Aggies.
Ryan Ripken, a 6-foot-6, 230-pound first baseman from Indian River State College in Florida, was taken in the 15th round by Washington. Mariano Rivera III, a starting pitcher at Iona College, went to the Yankees - his father's old team - in the 29th.
The sons of former big leaguers Bobby Bonilla, John Franco, Benito Santiago and Magglio Ordonez were also taken as baseball's draft wrapped up after three days.
