Major League Baseball 2013 Draft Prospects - Alex Baldock

UB's all time leader in doubles may have a chance to play after college.

The Major League draft is unlike any other among professional sports. Due to the tremendous size of baseballs farm system there are 40 rounds of action and 1,238 players picked. The existence of a farm system itself negates the need for colleges help train players.

More than twelve hundred players drawn from Colleges and high schools in the US and abroad means that if you are in a US college and among the top 100 or so players at a given position there is a chance you can be drafted. Baldock has is ranked as the number 103 college first baseman by the site BaseballDraftReport.com.

In four years with the Bulls Baldock has played in more games than all but eight other players in the history of UB Baseball. He holds the school record for doubles and twice during his career was among the top 150 in the nation at getting around the horn.
