Former GWA slugger headed to Washington

Posted: Friday, June 7, 2019 2:00 pm

After a record setting collegiate career, Kevin Strohschein is taking his game to the next level. The former George Walton Academy and Tennessee Tech star was drafted 633rd overall by the Washington Nationals in the 21st round of the Major League Baseball first year player draft Tuesday/Wednesday afternoon.

In his final campaign with the Golden Eagles, Strohschein spent the majority of the season rewriting the Tech and Ohio Valley Conference record books and establishing himself as one of the best to ever represent the conference. He closed out the year ranked first in the OVC in hits (89), doubles (23) and total bases (161), third in batting average (.382), runs (57) and slugging percentage (.691), fourth in home runs (15) and fifth in on base percentage (.447).
