Mike Drowne Selected In 28th Round Of MLB Draft

Sacred Heart's Mike Drowne (South Hadley, MA) was taken in the 28th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball draft today by the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Pioneer center fielder and leadoff hitter set a new single season run record in his senior campaign crossing the plate 65 times while also stealing 33 bases.  Drowne was selected to the All-Northeast conference second team in each of the last two seasons.

"Mike has done a great job for us the last two years and really deserves this honor," said SHU head coach Nick Giaquinto.  "He is a hard working kid and this is a feather in the cap for our program."

If Drowne signs his contract with the Dodgers he could begin playing professional ball this season.
