Kyle Schwarber to the Cubs! 


With the fourth pick overall in the 2014 MLB draft. 

Congratulations to a great catcher, a great hitter, and a great Hoosier!

Sam Travis goes to Red Sox in round two.  Congrats to Sam!   With Schwarber going to the Cubs in round one and a Chicago-area guy Travis going in round two, Coach Smith should be able to take recruiting to the next level.  Maybe Chicagoland in particular.

True dat.  The Schwarber draft pick by the Cubs made all the TV and radio news broadcasts  in Chicagoland, as well as the print media.  Tremendous exposure for the Hoosier baseball program in a huge media market.  You couldn't buy better advertising.

Now it's Dustin DeMuth to the Brewers in the 5th round, 146th pick overall. Glad to see he improved his draft position over last year, and he should make up for passing on the $157K signing bonus from the Twins last year. Moreover, the Brewers will be looking for help in the not-too-distant future for Aramis Ramirez at third.

Interesting article from a Cubs blog about Schwarber's meteoric rise in June as he jumps from Boise to the Kane County Cougars, and an update on Cubs' prize prospect Kris Bryant in AAA:
