These first two posts have already been posted elsewhere but I figured we might as well get the 24' Mega going the right way.

I must admit when I'm wrong...Hamilton got drafted and well deserved. Continued success going forward.

22 years old now sounds so young to me. I forget in baseball that some kids have already been in the minors 3 or 4 years. Hope he is allowed to skip short season and go to A-ball.

Who knows, he might not sign. NIL to match the signing bonus?! Who says no? Hahaha

Yep - I thought his 114 Ks / 86 Inn in a good league would get him some attention and then when it was reported he wasn't playing summer ball I figured he was getting drafted

No doubt good for him. Thought there was an outside chance of late round selection. If he comes back and repeats and improves some of his numbers… he would be an early round selection 1-3 ….. guess we’ll see. Big Congrats!

He didn't see the field at all this past season when Ole Miss went 25-26, but was an often-used reserve in their 2022 National Championship season. I don't see anything about him being injured this past season.
