Even though Texas State finished its baseball season, Ty Harrington‘s club is still tying school records.
With four selections in the third day of the MLB First-Year Player Draft, the Bobcats’ three-day total increased to five, tying a school record set last year. Along with senior Jeff McVaney, junior pitcher Louis Head, junior pitcher Colton Turner, junior pitcher Travis Ballew and senior first baseman Casey Kalenkosky were picked up in the draft.
Head paced Texas State’s selections on Wednesday as he was picked in the 18th round by the Cleveland Indians. He was the draft’s 563rd overall pick.
Turner got picked next, in the 21st round by the Toronto Blue Jays.
Two rounds later, Ballew had his number called by the Houston Astros. Ballew, a Rangers fan, immediately called Head, an Astros fan, to brag.
Kalenkosky then wrapped up the Bobcats’ day (so far) as the Atlanta Braves tabbed him in the 30th round. He will join former Texas State third baseman Kyle Kubitza in the Braves’ farm system.
