Pitcher Dan Marino was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 4th round of the 1979 amateur draft but did not sign with the club. He had gone 23-0 as a high school senior and hit over .500 as a senior, playing shortstop when not pitching. While a gifted baseball player, he was even more notable in football, making Parade All-American. Once he went to college, he opted just to play football. Marino played 17 years as quarterback of the Miami Dolphins of the NFL and led the team to a Super Bowl appearance in 1984. Upon his retirement, Marino held numerous NFL records. He once held the NFL record for most passing yards in a single-season with 5,084 yards in 1984.
