PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The 2014 season was an outstanding one for the St. Joseph’s Hawks baseball team as they won a program record 35 games, including two in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. The good news continued to roll in for two key members of that team as catcher Brian O’Keefe and right-hander Jordan Carter were selected in last week’s MLB Draft.
O’Keefe was selected in the 7th round by the St. Louis Cardinals.
“Words can’t even describe how excited and happy I am,” O’Keefe tells KYW Newsradio. “It has been a dream of mine since I was three years old to play professional baseball. For everything to be coming true at this point, it’s just unbelievable.”
