Six George Mason University baseball players were selected in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft with five of them going in the second day of the three-day event. Outfielder Scott Krieger, Mason’s all-time leader in hits, runs, home runs, and total bases, went in the 19th round to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Los Angeles Dodgers selected catcher Chris Henderson, the other Co-Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year, in the 21st round the Boston Red Sox chose pitcher Jordan Flasher in the 22nd round. Flasher opted to not sign after being drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 39th round last year. The other player to be selected in last year’s draft was pitcher Mike Modica, who went in the 46th round to the Houston Astros in 2008. This time around, the Astros drafted the 11-game winner in the 24th round. While Henderson earned first team All-America honors and Krieger qualified for the second team, Modica represented Mason with second team All-America honors on the pitching side. The Chicago Cubs went with first baseman Justin Bour in the 25th round to add onto their collection of sluggers. On the third day, the Blue Jays selected pitcher Shawn Griffith in the 37th round. The 2009 season was a record-breaking season for Mason on a number of occasions, even Griffith set the single-season school record with 29 appearances. Currently, there is only one Mason alum to pitch in the major leagues. Pitcher Shawn Camp, who was selected by the San Diego Padres in the 16th round in 1997, is in his sixth season after playing for the Kansas City Royals, Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and now the Toronto Blue Jays. Mason baseball players are ready to mark their territory in the major leagues.
