Another Bulldog was added to the list of draftees when Turlock alumnus Jeremy McDonald was drafted by the Washington Nationals in the 27th round of this year's Major League Baseball Draft.
McDonald, who pitched his final two seasons at California Baptist University in Riverside, started off his journey differently.
He began his first two seasons at Stanislaus State with the Warriors baseball team where he finished his second year in 2014 with a 4-6 record behind an ERA of 3.58 in 75 1/3 innings pitched.
McDonald then decided to move on to Cal Baptist for his final two seasons where he had two outstanding years for the Lancers, cementing himself as one of the best pitchers on the staff.
In his first season with the Lancers, McDonald was 5-3 with a 2.79 ERA in 80 2/3 innings while striking out 90 while hitters only had a .229 average.
During his last year at California Baptist, McDonald ranked third on the team with an ERA of 2.14 and accumulated an 8-0 record and was second on the team in innings pitched (84) and struck out 88 while batters hit only .237 off him.
He was also part of the Turlock Bulldogs 2010 and 2011 teams which earned Central California Conference titles.
