Former Flame Jacob May Drafted in 3rd Round -

Former Cincy Flame and Coastal Carolina Chanticleer outfielder Jacob May was taken 91st overall (3rd round) by the Chicago White Sox on Friday.  Here is what Major League Baseball had to say about May: "Over the years, Coastal Carolina has produced some solid Draft talent, some going as high as the second round. Whether May, the son of former big leaguer Lee May Jr., goes that early remains to be seen. May is a speedy, switch-hitting leadoff type. He has plus speed to steal bases and to run down balls in center field. The rest of his game still needs to be developed. He has some bat speed, but has to do a better job of making consistent hard contact. With improved jumps and routes, he'll be an above-average defender, though he can outrun mistakes now. The top-of-the-order and center field skills, not to mention the Major League lineage, will surely have many teams interested."
