A rare draft find from the College of Charleston, Brett was selected by the Yankees in the 3rd Round of the 2005 Amateur Draft.  After a steady climb through the Yankees' farm system, Brett was summoned to Old Yankee Stadium for his Major League Debut on June 30, 2008 and has become a cornerstone in the Yankees' outfield ever since.  Brett is a protypical leadoff hitter, making consistent contact and using his speed to create hits and runs.  Brett holds the honor of scoring the final run in Old Yankee Stadium on September 21, 2008.
