Tristin English’s dreams of being a professional baseball player is one step closer. On Tuesday, in the third round of the 2019 MLB Draft, the Arizona Diamondbacks selects Tristin English with the 93rd overall pick.
English, a three-time first team All ACC member was the first Jacket to be drafted in the 2019 MLB Draft.
The two-way star for the Jackets had a tremendous junior season that pushed him up draft boards across the league and his NCAA regional performance only raised eyebrows more.
This season, English hit .346/.427/.710 in 214 at bats. He hit 18 home runs on the season while driving in 71 base runners.
