Ivy Baseball Players Taken in MLB Draft
There isn't an SP jinx, but Princeton's B.J. Syzmanski wasn't taken in the first round of the ML draft. He was taken in the second round by that modern-day juggernaut, the Cincinnati Reds. Syzmanski made waves earlier this spring when he bombed a 450-foot HR over Justin Verlander, who was the #2 pick in the entire draft. Princeton hurler Ross Ohlendorf, like Syzmanski also a junior, was drafted by Arizona in the fourth round. Other Ivy players were drafted on the first day, so for a complete rundown, click here.
