If players were ranked on a combination of their colorful and unique backgrounds along with their own outgoing personalities, Touki Toussaint would probably rank No. 1 in the 2014 class. Much has already been written about him being from Haiti and not taking up baseball, and that on a dare from a friend, until his early teens. There are more stories to be written as well, perhaps by enterprising journalists when he reaches the big leagues.

Suffice to say that Toussaint is alone in the 2014 class in that he has ascended to one name status, like a Brazilian soccer star. He is known everywhere in the baseball community simply as “Touki.”
