Major League Baseball is taking a page out of the XFL's playbook, at least for one weekend.
Seton Hall University had two players selected in the draft. Most Wolverines were picked in rounds in the 20's or 30's. He made the hard decision to come back for his senior season. In 50 games, Slenker hit.342 with four home runs, 40 RBI and 41 runs scored.
Junior right-handed pitcher Garrett Suchey was the first Tide player chosen, taken in the 26th round by the Kansas City Royals with the 780th pick. He finished with a 5-4 record and a 4.10 ERA over 68 innings, striking out 57 and walking 33 in 15 appearances. A Terre Haute, Ind., product, Lannoo compiled a 3.86 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 21.0 innings. Wolfe also drove in 42 runs and was successful on 19-of-22 stolen base attempts.
Wolfe and Stratton became the fourth and fifth players from WSCC taken by the Pirates, joining Bobby Falls (1981 third round), David Miller (1984 24th round) and Zac Fuesser (2009 34th round).
For the second-straight year, Dartmouth produced the Ivy League's first draftee. He clinched Georgia's spot in the SEC Tournament this season with a road win over SC.
Qatar Airways calls on United Nations body to declare Qatar measures illegal
The Eritrean Information Ministry's statement of support on Monday came despite its previously close ties with energy-rich Qatar. According to sources, the premier and Army Chief will meet Saudi rulers in an effort to mediate between Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Chipola, the No. 1-ranked JUCO team in the nation, won the NJCAA World Series earlier this month in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Robert and Klobosits were the third and fourth members of Auburn's team to hear their names called, joining right-hander Keegan Thompson (third round, Chicago Cubs) and center fielder Jonah Todd (sixth round, Los Angeles Angels) from Monday and Tuesday.
One round later, the Baltimore Orioles picked up former Science Hill Hilltopper Reed Hayes with pick No. 398.
A junior this past season, Hayes was originally tabbed as a preferred walk-on bound for the University of Tennessee, spent two years at Walters State before joining coach Tim Corbin at Vanderbilt this spring. Hayes batted.276 with 45 hits and 36 RBIs this year, but his real time came out of the bullpen as the team's closer. The multi-tooled Hayes was drafted as a pitcher after serving as the Commodores' closer last season and registering seven saves. He was a member of the All-SEC Academic Team this past year.
