Thanks Wes, i enjoy the features on athletes from other ND sports and following up with them.
First time POTW for 4/18/2011-4/24/2011.
Have any ND players been drafted or expected to be drafted this year? I know a few of them are expected to be drafted next year.
On Tuesday Notre Dame junior catcher Joe Hudson was selected by the Cincinnati Reds in the sixth round of the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft Tuesday. He is the highest drafted Irish catcher since Ken Plesha went to the Chicago White Sox in the first round of the 1965 draft.
That's all I know for now, but we'll have updates coming.
From a ND press release:
“I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the Cincinnati Reds organization,” said Hudson. “This is truly a dream come true. However, my ultimate goal is to become a Major League player. I have a lot of work still ahead of me. I can’t thank the coaching staff at Notre Dame enough for what they have done for me not only as a baseball player but as a person.
“I want to thank all of my Notre Dame teammates from this year as well. If I do, in fact, sign, I will certainly miss each and everyone of them.”
"We as a coaching staff are so thrilled for Joe,” said second-year head coach Mik Aoki. “He has always been a premium catch-and-throw player, but his hard work at the plate paid off with a breakout offensive season. This is a tremendous reward for an outstanding year.”
