Mid-June Northern Sun Conference Baseball Update

Dirt and Grass

The summer slow period is upon us but there are a number of updates I can share regarding D2 college baseball teams in the Northern Sun Conference.

Major League Baseball held it’s MLB 2009 Draft last week and WSC Superfan put together a good list of the 59 NCAA Division 2 players that were drafted – MLB D2 Draft List.  Included among those players were 3 athletes from the Northern Sun Conference:

  • Chris Odegaard (Jr, RHP, Minnesota State) was drafted in the 23rd round by the Arizona Diamondbacks.  The interesting thing is that Odegaard was drafted as the 696th overall selection – the exact same selection that he was in then 2008 MLB draft.  Odegaard Drafted
  • Jacob Schmidt (Sr, RHP, Concordia) became the first ever player drafted from Concordia as he was selected in the 41st round by the Chicago Cubs.  Schmidt Drafted
  • Geno Glynn (Sr, 3B, Minnesota State) was drafted in the 43rd round by the Tampa Bay Rays.  He became the 30th Maverick to be drafted by a Major League team.  Glynn Drafted
