CLEMSON -- Five Tigers, highlighted by utility player Kris Harvey's selection in the second round, were taken in the Major League Draft from June 7-8, 2005. Harvey was drafted by the Florida Marlins, the same team his father (Bryan) was the closer for from 1993-95. Junior lefthander Robert Rohrbaugh was drafted in the seventh round by the Seattle Mariners.

On day two of the draft, senior righthander was drafted in the 35th round by the Detroit Tigers, junior catcher Adrian Casanova was drafted in the 44th round by the Detroit Tigers, and junior righthander Drew Fiorenza was drafted in the 45th round by the Cleveland Indians.

With the five selections, Jack Leggett has had a total of 52 players drafted in his 12 seasons as head coach at Clemson. Eight of those 52 players were drafted twice, meaning a Tiger has been drafted 60 times in his tenure. Thirteen more Tigers have signed free-agent contracts as well.

Chalk, Harbin Named Freshman All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball


Freshmen Brad Chalk (OF) and Taylor Harbin (2B) were both named freshman All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball on Wednesday. Chalk leads the team with a .356 batting average and a .461 on-base percentage. He has tied the single-season school record for sacrifice bunts with 14 and has walked 31 times against only 18 strikeouts. Harbin, a second-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball, is hitting .350 with 28 doubles, 10 homers, and 62 RBIs. Harbin was a First-Team All-ACC selection this year as well.
