Default White Sox drafted a classmate of mine!

http://athletics.macalester.edu/news...606120503.aspx

Mitch Glasser is an infielder who recently graduated from Macalester College: my school as well as DumpJerry's alma mater. He is a Chicago native whose favorite childhood team was the Sox.

Taken in the 39th round, this is big news on campus. I don't know if a baseball player from our little school has ever been drafted. Congrats to Mitch and his family! This was shocking news to me. It's interesting to know of someone from Macalester who will play professional ball at any level.

That is awesome.
2 players from my college (Southeast Missouri State) got drafted today both by the Atlanta Braves. Its pretty cool to see.

Haha that's great bleacher.

I have actually gotten to know Mitch very well over the past 4 years. One of my best buddies from HS also played baseball at Macalester College in St. Paul and lived with Mitch throughout college. An absolutely great kid and also a heck of a ball player. One of those crazy athletes that is good at just about any sport. Played golf with him once and he claimed it was the first time he had played in years and he was ripping the ball 280 straight down the fairway every time.

Super excited to follow Mitch throughout the minors. I had the chance to speak with him yesterday, and he is just ecstatic. Said he can't wait to sign on the dotted line and go play some ball. Couldn't be happier for him.

Sean Payton went to my High School (Naperville Central)... but then again, NCHS is a pretty huge school.
