Liberty pitcher drafted by Detroit Tigers

June 9, 2010 : Liberty Athletics

Liberty pitcher Shawn Teufel was selected in the 25th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Tuesday by the Detroit Tigers.

Teufel, who this spring completed his final season with the Flames, becomes the 40th player in Liberty history to be taken in the MLB draft. 

The left-hander earned Big South All-Conference first-team honors for the second consecutive year this past season, helping the Flames to a school record for victories with a 42-19 mark.

With Teufel’s selection, the Flames have had a player taken in every MLB Draft since 2000.
