Danny Goodwin made history in 1975 when he became the first (and only) player to be drafted first overall in two separate years.  Originally selected with the top pick in 1971 by the White Sox, Goodwin opted to play college ball for Southern University and A&M.  After a brilliant career there -- one that would gain him enshrinement to the National College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011 -- he was taken by the Angels with the first pick in the 1975 draft.  The Twins acquired Goodwin in 1978.  He spent three years in Minnesota as a part-time DH, first baseman, and pinch hitter.
