During the 2013 Major League Baseball’s three-day draft, five HBCU students were picked. Savannah State pitcher Kyle McGrowin was selected in the fifth round by the Los Angeles Angels. Also picked up by the Angels was Angel Rosa, the Alcorn State shortstop. Kelvin Freeman from North Carolina A&T was drafted by the Chicago Cubs, Jose De Leon from Southern State joined the Los Angeles Dodgers and Cory Jordan, a pitcher at Grambling State, went to the Tampa Bay Rays. (Photo: Courtesy of Major League Baseball)
