Gavin Cross Becomes VT's All Time Highest MLB Draft Selection

Good for him. Hopefully he'll keep hitting the ball out of the park and be a great Hokie in the pros.

Hokies!

Royals?

We put the K in Kwality

Both! Growing up a Mets fan and then having to live for several years in the St. Louis area with the Mets-Cardinals-Cubs three-sided hate fest in the 1980s, I've always like the Royals because of their beating the Cardinals in the 85 WS. Even the Royals beating the Mets many years later did not dim things for me with the Royals.

Congrats to Gavin!

And the OU pitcher who rocked us in Game 3 of the Super Regionals went #7, Cade Horton.

In an absolutely hitter stacked draft class my MLB team uses the 7th overall pick to select:
The pitcher that knocked my college out of the playoffs that had 4.86 ERA this season. Neat.

Is he staying?

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

If you get drafted this high you generally go unless you get really greedy with your bonus demands.

Correct he is going to get a couple million as a bonus at least I'm sure.

Bonus value for the 9th overall pick in this years draft is approximately $5.2 Million. So yeah, he gone.
