Albert Eugene Chambers (born March 24, 1961) is a former Major League Baseball player from 1983 to 1985 for the Seattle Mariners. Chambers was the first pick overall in the 1979 Major League Baseball Draft out of high school by the Mariners, but proved a disappointment, as he only appeared in fifty-seven games in his career. In that same draft, the Toronto Blue Jays drafted catcher Jay Schroeder, who'd go on to be and NFL quarterback. That first round also produced Tim Leary, Andy Van Slyke, Steve Buechele, Brad Komminsk, Tim Wallach, Rick Leach and Jerry Don Gleaton, all of whom would go on to have long MLB careers compared to Chambers.[1]
