BREAKING: Hunter Renfroe Drafted #13th Overall by San Diego in MLB Draft

The Bethesda Big Train would like to congratulate Hunter Renfroe (BT '11-'12 / Mississippi State) for being drafted 13th by the San Diego Padres in tonight's Major League Baseball Draft.
Renfroe, a native of Crystal Springs, Mississippi, led the Big Train to many victories over the last two seasons. His power, speed, throwing arm, and sportsmanship are everything that the Bethesda Big Train strives to be.
A member of the 2011 National Championship team, Renfroe was the team's Most Outstanding Hitter and set the team record for home runs in the summer of 2011.
Renfroe returned to Bethesda in 2012 and set league records for home runs, RBI, runs scored, slugging percentage, and total bases. For his efforts, the Big Train retired his #11.
"Hunter is the best five-tool player I have ever coached and the greatest position player ever to play in this league," said Big Train Manager Sal Colangelo.
Renfroe's selection at #13 sets the record for the highest a player has ever been drafted who played in the CRCBL the previous summer. It is also the highest a Big Train player has ever been drafted.
Renfroe was named a First Team All-American by Louisville Slugger this season at Mississippi State (along with many other honors). His season continues as they face the Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville in a best-of-three series in the Super Regionals of the College World Series.
