With their 23rd Round pick...

...The Astros selected switch-hitting 2B Ruben Sosa, a 5'7" 170lb 20-year old junior out of Oklahoma City University.

Sosa, out of Lawrence, Massachusetts, led off for OCU, and lists his career plans as a two-parter: Graduate from OCU and "play professional baseball." Well done!

Sosa hit .373/.446/.556 for OCU, with 25XBH/42RBI, with 27K:22BB, and 44 stolen bases out of 49 attempts and a .990 Fld%.

The Seacoast Mavericks had signed him to play in their collegiate baseball league, where Mavericks Director of Baseball Operations Mike Daboul said: "Ruben possesses tremendous speed and range as both a shortstop and outfielder. He has big league speed, better than average arm strength, and has some pop in that bat."
