Joc Russell Pederson was born on April 21, 1992, in Palo Alto, California, and attended Palo Alto High School.
Joc was selected by the Dodgers in the 11th round of the 2010 Amatuer Baseball Draft.
Joc , like his Dodgers teammate Yasiel Puig two years ago, is my favorite rookie to watch so far this young baseball season.
I have him on my don't change the channel list when he comes to bat.
Happy Baseball Birthday! to Doc Pederson...
