58 From ACC Chosen in 2022 MLB Draft
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Led by Georgia Tech’s eight selections, the Atlantic Coast Conference saw 58 players taken in the 2022 Major League Baseball Draft, which concluded Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Miami followed the Yellow Jackets with six players selected while Duke, Louisville, North Carolina and Virginia Tech each had five players chosen. Each of the ACC’s 14 teams had at least one player taken in this year’s 20-round draft.

The eight draft picks from Georgia Tech – which included first-round selection Kevin Parada at No. 11 overall by the New York Mets – are just two shy of the school record of 10 players drafted, which has been set on three previous occasions.

Miami’s six picks mark the most Hurricanes taken in the first 20 rounds since 2016.

Virginia Tech outfielder Gavin Cross was the first ACC player taken in this year’s draft, going ninth overall to the Kansas City Royals

This marked the 31st consecutive year that at least one ACC player has been selected in the opening round of the MLB Draft and the seventh straight year that the ACC has placed at least one draftee among the top 15 picks.
