Manziel gets drafted again, this time by San Diego Padres

In the 28th round of the Major League Baseball draft the San Diego Padres selected Johnny Manziel, they listed him as a shortstop. They even referred to him as "Johnny Baseball" in a tweet. 

There is no reason to believe Manziel will ever play pro baseball, but he was grateful of the act tweeting "Big thank you to the @Padres and @padresmikedee for selecting me in the MLB draft. What a great day!"

Manziel has played baseball in the past and in an interview with the Associated Press said, "I do miss (baseball). I would love to play. But I chose a different path. Football became center stage in my life when I always thought I would play baseball."

Manziel is spending the weekend in Austin, Texas where the X-Games are being played. He will be back in Cleveland next week for Browns mini-camp.
