Seven Tigers Drafted
Five pitchers were selected on day one, including junior righthander Jason Berken in the sixth round by the Baltimore Orioles, graduate righty Josh Cribb in the eighth round by the Kansas City Royals, junior righthander Steve Richard in the eighth round by the Seattle Mariners, junior righthander Stephen Faris in the 12th round by the San Diego Padres, and senior righty Drew Fiorenza in the 15th round by the Seattle Mariners.
Junior first-baseman Andy D'Alessio was selected in the 10th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers. With the seven selections, Jack Leggett has had a total of 59 players drafted in his 13 seasons as head coach at Clemson. Nine of those 59 players were drafted twice, meaning a Tiger has been drafted 68 times in his tenure. Thirteen more Tigers have signed free-agent contracts as well.
