RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The 2015 Major League Baseball Draft begins Monday June 8th at 7:00 PM and will be broadcast on the MLB Network. One local star may hear his name called early.
Nic Enright won the Gatorade Player of the Year Award for Virginia thanks to a stellar career at the Steward School that included a state title in 2014. According to coach Bruce Secrest, Enright has hit 95 on the radar gun with his fastball and has a “major league plus curve ball” (that’s good).
Enright has committed to play at Virginia Tech, and wouldn’t say if he still planned to be a Hokie if drafted in the first or second round.
“I’m not really thinking about that. I’m committed to Virginia Tech,” Enright said. “I’m looking forward to going and being a Hokie, and if something comes up, something comes up. Right now I’m committed to being at Virginia Tech.”
MLB Network will broadcast the first two rounds and two competitive balance rounds Tuesday night. The draft continues on Tuesday and Wednesday with later rounds.
