With the 1st pick in the 12th Round (369th overall), the Astros select 6'3" 230lb LF, a 20-year old out of Florida State College (JuCo).
*Joyce has committed to Virginia Tech. Joyce:
“It’s awesome to know I’ll be going to a Division I program. Not only that, I’m going to the place I wanted to go all along. I wanted to go to Virginia Tech out of high school and now, I have the chance to play there. Growing up (in Newport News), everybody loved VT. It’s a great university and it’s all coming together now.”

*Joyce was the FCSAA Player of the Year, FCSAA First-Team All-State, and the Top Rated Overall Mid-Florida Conference Player.
*Joyce might not be all that excited about going in the 12th Round, but his dad sure is:
"He's just a huge fan of all Houston teams. He was a big Oilers fan, and he really likes the Astros, too. I guess he has another reason to like the Astros now."
