Three Saints chosen in 2012 MLB Draft
Sep 21, 2012
Flagler College’s Garrett Bush, Jonathan Armold and John Sgromolo were each selected in June’s 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, marking the first time three players from the school were selected in one draft. Bush, a right-handed pitcher, went in the 24th round, the 747th pick overall, to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Armold, a right-handed pitcher went in the 30th round, the 935th overall pick, to the Milwaukee Brewers. John Sgromolo, a first baseman, was selected in the 37th round, the 1,136th pick, to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“These kids dream of playing professional baseball,” said Dave Barnett, head baseball coach. “This is a great day for them and for Flagler. I am happy to have had the opportunity to coach Garrett, Jonathan and John.”
Flagler had the most players selected in the draft from the Peach Belt Conference. In fact, three of the five players picked from the league wore Crimson and Gold. The last time Flagler had multiple players selected in a draft was 1995 when Jim Woodrow was picked in the 5th round by the San Francisco Giants and Gary Santoro was selected in 29th Round by the then-Florida Marlins.Tagged As
