Here are just a few of the names and I know we will leave someone out, so send their name in….

Alex Swim(Northwest Guilford HS/Elon) taken in the 22nd Round by the Minnesota Twins….Alex is the all-time hits leader at Elon U…

Dallas Newton(Southeast Guilford HS/Pitt Community College) taken in the 32nd Round by the Arizona Diamondbacks….

Zack Littell(Eastern Alamance HS) taken in the 11th Round, but not sure which team selected him….We now have him going to the Seattle Mariners and the Mariners also have Dustin Ackley(North Forsyth/UNC) and the Mariners have the Kyle Seager kid from Central Cabarrus and Seagar last week set an MLB record when he became the first man to tie a game with a Grand Slam in extra innings….He hit a Grand Slam to re-tie the game somewhere around the 15th inning of an Mariners game….Pretty crazy, but it happened…..Seattle Mariners with Kyle Seager, Dustin Ackley and soon to be Zack Littell…..

Hunter Ridge(Southwestern Randolph HS/UNCW) is due to at one of the Rome Braves/Atlanta Braves free agent try-out camps today(Monday)….Ridge is the all-time hits leader at UNC-Wilmington….
