We've done an "alumni news" blog on how former Cary High baseball player Cory Harrilchak was drafted by the Atlanta Braves after his senior year at Elon.
Now we're doing one yet another former Cary High baseball player drafted by the Atlanta Braves.
Andrew Wilson, a 6'2 180-pound right handed pitcher from Liberty University, was selected by the Braves with the 1,078th pick (36th round) in the MLB draft last week. Wilson and Harrilchak were teammates at Cary.
Wilson went 5-3 in his final year with the Flames, posting a 3.52 ERA in 64 innings pitched.
In the Big South Conference, Wilson was fifth in strikeouts (70) and tied for fourth in saves (5). Wilson’s five saves were also tops for Liberty, as he averaged 9.84 strikeouts per nine innings. He made 24 appearances, 21 of which came out of the bullpen.
We hope to have more from these two Imps-turned-Braves in next week's TCN sports section.
