Congrats to Ian Seymour getting selected in 2nd round of the shorting 2020 MLB draft😃

The Tampa bay Rays selected Ian Seymour as the 57th pick of the 2nd round. Really great pickup for the rays as Seymour dominated in the covid shorting 2020 ncaa baseball season going 3-0 with a 2.21 era and 40 strikeouts to 5 walks in 20.1 innings pitched 😃 im so happy for him

Weren't we set to have a solid team this year? Hate that we didn't get the spring sport season (and especially missing the NCAA wrestling championship).

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I think we would have made the acc tournament but that shouldn't be too hard cause only 2 teams miss the tournament 😂 if we would had fix up our bullpen problems we would have a top 6 team in the ACC this year😃

He's been a phenomenal pitcher for the Hokies. I knew he was going to get picked high but I didn't expect it would be in the second round. Looking forward to what he does in the pros.

For some one that doesn't understand baseball, Is he the 57th overall pick? Or just the 57th pick in the 2nd round. If later, how are there 57 picks in round 2?

57th pick overall pick

FYI the Tampa Bay Rays GM, Erik Neander, is an '07 Virginia Tech alum. He was recognized as MLB's Executive of the Year for 2019. Go Hokies!!

Way to go! Is 36 young to be a GM in baseball?

Not sure honestly, but I doubt most GMs are under 40. I suppose the trend has been to go younger due to the acceptance of sabermetrics in baseball. I do know that Theo Epstein was around 30 when he was appointed GM of the Red Sox in 2002, but I don't think that's the norm.
