Three Owls off the board so far today, all pitchers:



My dreams finally came true, McKay said. Im excited to see what this has in store for me. Kansas City was interested in me and thats who I thought would draft me. They do a good job of developing pitchers, so Im ready to get started.

I am thankful to be given the opportunity to continue to grow and play the game that has developed me into who I am today, Coursel said. It is a childhood dream come true.

Funny how things go. FAU knew CJ was going to be in demand. We were worried about our pitching. Three of the four drafted....pitchers.

Im happy to keep baseball going, Endris said. I wouldnt be here today if it wasnt for FAU and our coaches - they increased my baseball knowledge and helped make this possible.
