Gator Baseball Will Return Three Drafted Players; Several High Schoolers

By on August 16th, 2011

The deadline has passed for draft eligible baseball players to either sign with a pro team or go to school and the Gator baseball team managed to keep a few of its own players from a year ago and some of the newcomers who were drafted as well.

Returning from last year’s team will be senior first baseman Preston Tucker, senior pitcher Greg Larson and senior outfielder Tyler Thompson.

In addition, four newcomers who were drafted will be instead playing for the Gators in infielders Josh Tobias and Casey Turgeon as well as righthanded pitcher John Magliozzi and outfielder/righthanded pitcher Ryan Harris.

Florida did lose four other players who were drafted very highly in first round selections Michael Kelly and Hudson Boyd as well as second round selection Daniel Vogelbach and Kansas City Royals fourth round selection Kyle Smith.
