Phiota Drafted by the San Diego Padres


San Diego, California - June 2010

Catcher Justin "Bregador" Echevarria (Fall '07 Beta Chapter) of the Stony Brook University baseball team was selected by the San Diego Padres in 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday afternoon.

A 2010 second team All-America East selection, Echevarria appeared in 46 games behind the plate and hit a career-high .291. He also threw out 13 base runners in just 19 attempts. A 2008 second team all-conference selection as well, Echevarria appeared in 151 games in his Stony Brook career.

Echevarria helped the Stony Brook Seawolves to their second America East title in the past three years in 2010. He also had a hit and a RBI in Stony Brook's 6-2 win over North Carolina State on Saturday at the Myrtle Beach Regional. It was the first Division I NCAA Tournament win in the program's history.
