Arizona Diamondbacks Draft Derek Eitel
My nephew, Derek Eitel, will be joining one of the Arizona Diamondbacks farm teams after he was drafted in the 511th spot in today's second day for the Major League Baseball draft. He becomes the first athlete from Rose-Hulman to enter the pros in the school's history. WTHI-TV in Terre Haute was there to witness the moment with Derek, family members and friends at his family's home in Marshall, Illinois.
