LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Twitter-verse exploded Saturday afternoon when the official Twitter account of the San Diego Padres tweeted that they selected Johnny Manziel with the 837th pick of the 2014 MLB Draft.

Yes, that Johnny Manziel.

#JohnnyBaseball was the top trending search in the United States with “Texas A&M U SS Johnny Manziel” following behind.

twitter The Padres Select... Johnny Manziel?

Manziel tweeted in response to the Padres, playing along and thanking the organization for selecting him.

Last season, Manziel threw out a pitch at a Padres game and apparently impressed the front office with his skills.

It’s safe to say Johnny Football is here to stay.
