The 2010 MLB Draft ended yesterday (no one told me the MLB Draft goes on for approximately 150 rounds) with six Eagles getting drafted by Major League clubs. The six BC players were the most ever in a single MLB draft, a testament to what the move to the ACC has done to raise the profile of Boston College baseball.
Congratulations to the following BC baseball players:
102 (3). LHP Pat Dean, Minnesota
222 (7). INF Micky Wiswall, Seattle
278 (9). RHP Kevin Moran, Chicago White Sox
792 (26). OF Robbie Anston, Seattle
1058 (35). OF John Spatola, Chicago White Sox
1098 (36). RHP John Leonard, San Francisco
It was a record draft not only for BC, but also for the ACC. The ACC had a record 64 players drafted in this year's MLB Draft. Georgia Tech led the way and tied a school record with 10 selections. Virginia followed with 9, Virginia Tech with 8, and Florida State, Clemson and BC each had 6 selections.
