New MLB Draft Record!

Players dumping Gatorade on coach

UPDATED: Josh Jung leads a group of 18 Foresters chosen in the 2019 MLB Draft.
With Opening Day coming on June 7, the 2019 Foresters will soon be making all sorts of headlines. On Monday, June 3, a 2017 Forester made the news. Third baseman Josh Jung became the highest-drafted Foresters player ever when he was taken No. 8 overall by the Texas Rangers in the 2019 MLB Draft. Josh and his sweet swing hit .341 for the ’Sters before he returned to lead this year’s Red Raiders into the NCAA playoffs. That’s Josh wearing No. 30 splashing Bill Pintard after Josh helped the ’Sters give Pinner win No. 900!

Congrats to Josh and all the other players and best of luck!
