MLB Draft Starts Tonight

The Major League draft begins with Round 1, the Supplemental Rounds, and Round 2 starting at 7 PM this evening. It’s one of my favorite nights of the year!

By most accounts, Nate Pearson (Staunton 2016), Michael Gigliotti (Covington 2015) and Garrett Cave (Staunton 2015) will be the first Valley Leaguers drafted.

Stay tuned- I will be keeping track!
