Baseballs Pick Six!

UK is one of only three teams in the nation to have SIX players selected in the first ten rounds of the MLB draft.

Sean Hjelle was the first Wildcat selected, going to the San Fransisco Giants with the 45th pick in the second Round. He was followed by OF Tristan Pompey (3rd round, Miami), C/1B Kole Cottam (4th, Boston), RHP Zach Haake (6th, Kansas City), INF/OF Luke Heyer (8th, LA Dodgers) and 2B Luke Becker (9th, San Diego).

Hard to believe these guys were not given the opportunity to compete in the NCAA tournament.
