It won’t be long now.
Travis Demeritte, a recent graduate of Winder-Barrow High School, is expected to be selected in this week’s Major League Baseball draft, possibly as high as the first round.
Demeritte, who helped lead the Bulldoggs to a second-round state playoff appearance this spring, played in front of pro scouts throughout his senior season.
The 2013 MLB draft begins Thursday at 6 p.m. with the first and second rounds. Rounds 3-10 will begin Friday at noon with rounds 11-40 set for noon Saturday.
