Baseball America: State of Georgia Draft Report

1 Comment »

From Baseball America:

“Georgia’s baseball culture has led it to become one of the most productive states in the nation. The state pumps out first round picks every year, with the Atlanta area usually home to several. This year, most of the prep talent in Georgia is far from Atlanta, with top prospects coming from the southern and eastern parts of the state .

“The college players in Georgia are way down. Neither Georgia Tech nor Georgia—the only power conference schools in the state—has a formidable draft prospect for 2017.”

I hope Tech doesn’t lose anybody to the draft, being entirely selfish.

I noticed this year that only Georgia, among all states in the Southeast, lacked a single NCAA tournament team. Pitiful! Connecticut had two, Los Angeles (a metro area) had three.
