Draft Domination! 23 ’Sters Chosen by MLB Teams

Player batting

By Jim Buckley: The annual Major League Baseball Amateur Draft concluded on Tuesday, and as usual the Foresters were well-represented. A powerful total of 23 former or current Foresters were chosen, including our fourth first-rounder—2020 SS Matt McLain (pictured) of UCLA—and four consecutive picks to wrap up the fourth round, ending with 2020 EP 19 pitcher of the year Nick Nastrini, also of UCLA.

More than 57 former Foresters have reached the Major Leagues. Who will join them from this list of fan favorites? Stay tuned and ’Ster it up!
