It was a record-tying week for Mississippi State in the Major League Baseball Draft as the Bulldogs are sending reinforcements into the minors for the next run at The Show.
A total of 11 MSU players heard their names called over the marathon 40-round draft over the course of three days. It tied the school record set back in 2016 with the only other team that has earned a national seed in the NCAA Tournament.
The draft class was led by first-round left-handed pitcher Ethan Small, who was taken on Monday night with the 28th overall pick in the draft to the Milwaukee Brewers.
