Cannabis and sports have always maintained somewhat of a rocky relationship. However, for one lucky newcomer, it seems as though his liking to Mary Jane hasn’t been a detriment for his sports career after all. Phil Bickford, a Southern California native, was a top pick during this year’s MLB draft and was selected by San Francisco’s Giants even despite the fact that he tested positive for marijuana in his pre-draft test.
A congratulations is on order for Phil and his forthcoming season with the Giants. Here’s to grabbing wins and avoiding positive tests.
“Sports freaks will be interested to know that the 6-foot-4 Bickford dominated opposition at the JC level this year, going 9-1 with a 1.45 ERA and 166 strikeouts in 86 2/3 innings. That is to say he is very, very good.”
