Austin Pentecost (11) – Drafted in the 33rd Round by Tampa Bay



Austin Pentecost, member of the fearsome 2011 Goldpanners pitching staff, was drafted in the 29th round by the Cubs.  

Here is the coverage from KXLY Sports:

Pentecost, a senior right-hander from Kennewick, Wash., was selected in the 29th round by the Chicago Cubs with the 884th overall pick, while Goodgion, a left-handed junior from Kent, Wash., was chosen in the 33rd round as the 1,022nd pick by the Tampa Bay Rays.

Lewis-Clark State has now had a total of 121 players selected in the draft since 1975, and has had at least one player selected in every draft since 1978.

“It feels good—kind of like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders,” Pentecost said about being drafted. “I talked to a few scouts the night before and they were telling me that I’d probably get picked somewhere between 16-30, but I was really surprised by the Cubs because I hadn’t really talked to them all season.”
