Both Coleman and Schimpf are playing in the College World Series this next week in Omaha, Neb.
Also getting drafted on Wednesday was Dan Kaczrowski, the 2008 CICL Mike Schmidt MVP winner from the Dans and Hamline University. He was a 26th-round selection of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
“To be honest with you, I don’t think there is any way that this would have happened to me if I didn’t play in Danville last year,’’ Kaczrowski said. “I learned so much there and matured so much as a player.’’
Other players getting drafted on Thursday were Chris McGuinness of The Citadel, by Boston Red Sox in the 13th round; Purdue’s Dan Black by the Chicago White Sox in the 14th round, David Born of Long Beach State by the Colorado Rockies in the 22nd round and Mississippi’s Evan Button by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 22nd round.
