Luebke, Davis Taken In MLB Draft

Ohio State's Cory Luebke and Illinois' Lars Davis have both been selected on Day 1 of the Major League Baseball Draft. Luebke, the conference's Pitcher of the Year, was the first Big Ten player selected as the sixty-third overall choice to San Diego. Davis, the Big Ten's Player of the Year, was taken by the Colorado Rockies with the 102 pick overall.

These were the only two Big Ten players selected as I write. I suspect we will see quite a few more tomorrow.

Congratulations to both Luebke and Davis. I wish them well at the next level.
