It’s not his first time being drafted, but it’s still an exciting time for former Monroe Area baseball star Jacob Olson. Olson was drafted 792nd overall by the Chicago Cubs in the 26th round of the Major League Baseball first year player draft Wednesday afternoon.

The Monroe native was previously drafted in the 39th round of the 2016 MLB draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
