When USF junior shortstop Sam Mende was selected in the 31st round of the Major League Baseball draft Wednesday afternoon, it represented a record-tying selection for the Bulls baseball program.
Mende, selected 948th overall by the Colorado Rockies, was the sixth Bulls player drafted this year, tying the program record for most draft picks in a single year set in both 1987 and 1997.
Senior pitchers Kevin Quackenbush (8th round; San Diego Padres), Junior Carlin (20th round; Los Angeles Angels) and Randy Fontanez (27th round; New York Mets), senior infielder Jonathan Koscso (29th round; Tampa Bay Rays) and junior pitcher Jimmy Moran (18th round; Cincinnati Reds) each were selected on Tuesday.
The 50-round MLB draft concludes today, and USF has several draft-eligible players still available, leaving the chance for the 2011 Bulls squad to see its total increase.
