St. Louis Drafts O'Keefe in 7th Round
Colonie, NY - The St. Louis Cardinals selected catcher Brian O'Keefe (Colonie/St. Joseph's) in Friday's 7th round of the MLB Draft.
He's one of a record-tying four Section II products taken in the first 10 rounds of this year's draft, matching a feat done just once before.
Three of them, O'Keefe, Branden Cogswell (Shen/A's), and Jeff Hoffman (Shaker/Blue Jays) were also teammates with the South Troy Dodgers in 2011 when the team reached the Connie Mack World Series.
The fourth local taken this year, Siena's Matt Gage (B-Perth/Giants), was another of the undrafted yet undaunted out of high school club.
