Port St. Joe, FL-- We start tonight with big news for one of this area's top high school baseball talents, and why he now has a humongous decision to make. Port St. Joe shortstop/outfielder Roman Quinn heard his name called in the second round of the M-L-B draft Tuesday. Roman, number 3, hit 385 this past season , over 400 for coach Brewer and the Sharks the last two seasons, with a total of 41 rbi and 82 runs scored in those two years.
He's one of the fastest players in the draft, running a 6-36 60. The Phillies interested in using Roman as a middle infielder. Back in November, Roman signed a baseball scholarship offer with Florida State, so now he has to decide, go pro or play with the Seminoles. He told me today he likes the idea of staying close to home and playing big time college ball, but admitted he's leaning towards professional ball. Roman, who's getting advice from a Tampa based agent, along with his family and coach Brewer, will deal directly with the Phillies in the next few days and hopes to decide rather soon.
