Gardner-Edgerton High School left-handed pitcher John Means recently became the second Blazer to be selected in the Major League Baseball draft. He was picked in the 46th round of the draft by the Atlanta Braves.
It was the first time ever that two Blazers have been selected in the same draft. Means is the third player ever to be drafted out of GEHS.
Means signed a national letter of intent to play baseball at Ft. Scott Community College and has until Aug. 16 to decide to go with the Braves or attend Ft. Scott.
