Morissette is the second Eagle to be drafted this year, following his teammate Sal Frelick who was picked in yesterday’s first round by the Milwaukee Brewers.
Morissette was an All-American as a sophomore and freshman, as well as being named to the All-ACC Second Team his freshman year. He has a .337 career batting average, 12 career home runs, 70 career runs scored, and 85 career RBIs.
Morisette had a career high 6 home runs and 29 runs scored for the Eagles this past season. During his COVID-shortened sophomore season, he recorded a .448 batting average over 14 games, including 26 hits and 11 RBIs in 58 at bats. On the defensive side of things, Morisette recorded a career high .965 fielding percentage this year.
Morisette is the 85th Eagle to be drafted into the MLB.
Congrats to Cody!
