49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was drafted by the Cubs in 2009

GFBB NOTE:  Ever since Alex Smith, QB for the 49ers appeared at a news conference wearing a SF Giants cap, and then threw out the first pitch at the 2012 NLDS game at AT&T Park, there’s been a real fondness between the SF Giants and the SF 49ers, especially since the NFL threatened to fine Smith if he kept wearing the Giants cap at NFL functions.   It made Smith sort of a hero in my mind.   The mutual admiration society continues as we learn today that yesterday’s hero, back-up QB Colin Kaepernick, was also a standout pitcher in high school and had to choose between football and baseball scholarships for college.  We might just have another Montana-Young combo in the works here folks.  It will be interesting to see how this one plays out.
