The 2013 Major League Baseball Draft was not a round old when recent Winder-Barrow High School graduate Travis Demeritte received the call every player who steps on a baseball field hopes to get.
Demeritte was selected in the first round of the draft by the Texas Rangers. He was the 30th player selected overall. Demeritte, who helped lead the Diamond Doggs to the second round of the state playoffs this spring, said the Rangers are one of his favorite teams.
“I’m really thankful for everything,” Demeritte said.
