BASEBALL: Weir drafted by Padres
Former Ball State pitcher T.J. Weir has been drafted by the San Diego Padres with the 12th pick in the 17th round of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
As a starter, Weir finished the 2014 season with an 8-2 pitching record, a 3.61 earned-run average, as well as a save. The 117 strikeouts he tallied was the ninth most in the country.
Weir is the first of three former Cardinals who are hoping to hear their names called today.
