Three of the area's best baseball players are looking forward to the coming week, as the 2011 MLB First-Year Player Draft commences Monday.
Bunker Hill's Jeremy Null, Hickory's Tyler Poole and Lenoir-Rhyne's Brian Dice are all potential picks in this year's draft, which is televised on the MLB Network starting Monday.
Null, a 6-foot-7-inch pitcher, stiffled offenses with a strong early 90s fastball. He used his senior season to further develop his pitching by adding breaking pitches to his repertoire.
