Back in the beginning of June, 46 former (and current) Valley Leaguers were drafted by major league teams. Out of those 46, only 3 have not signed a pro contract: Dylan Horne (currently pitching for Staunton), Reed Hayes (also pitching for Staunton), and Billy Endris (Charles Town 2014).
On another positive note, nine former VBLers were signed as free agents after the draft concluded. There may be more in the coming days, too.
Here are the nine extra:
John Williams, Haymarket 2012, George Mason, Tampa Bay Rays
Matt Tindall, Aldie 2013, Trinity, Los Angeles Angels
Brandon Glazer, Waynesboro 2013, Charleston, Los Angeles Angels
Omar Cotto, Front Royal 2014, USC, Milwaukee Brewers
Jonathan Popadics, Woodstock 2013, The Master’s, Tampa Bay Rays
Mike Estevez, Charles Town 2013, Alabama State, Toronto Blue Jays
Ford Stainback, Haymarket 2012, Rice, Houston Astros
Bryant Hayman, Staunton 2013, Valdosta State, Minnestoa Twins
Garrett Russini, Waynesboro 2014, Stetson, Pittsburgh Pirates
Congratulations to all 55 guys! Now comes the fun part- following the careers of all!
