In yesterday’s Major League baseball draft with the 7th pick the San Diego Padres selected Max Fried out of Harvard-Westlake High School in Studio City, California. A highly touted 6’4 pitcher, who will undoubtedly spend time in the minors but has major league ability.
We will no doubt keep an eye on his progress but he has serious potential to be the next great Jewish athlete. To read more on the Padres draft click HERE. The LA Times ran a story about Fried’s admiration for Sandy Koufax two years back. Click HERE to read more.
Good luck kid, we will be watching.
Another kid drafted out of High School is Charles E. Smith’s Max Unger.
TGR is happy to announce the Max Unger of Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School was drafted in the 36th round by the Washington Nationals. Congrats to Unger. To read more click HERE.
