SS Mike Gilmartin was chosen today in the Major League Baseball draft by the Oakland A's in the 27th round. He should have gone higher, but that's the way it goes. It looks like he is being projected as a 2B, but I know he will be successful at any position.

Is there a signing bonus involved? Does that mean he won't be back?

That's one of the things I have never liked about college baseball. Very few very good players play all four years. I guess it's just the nature of the game.

Congratulations, though.
