Two Liberty Flames were selected during the final day of the 2016 Major League Baseball (MLB) First Year Player Draft, this afternoon.
The Detroit Tigers selected shortstop Dalton Britt in the 31st round, while pitcher Parker Bean was chosen in the 36th round by the Milwaukee Brewers.
With the selection of the two Flames, Liberty has now had 63 players selected in the MLB Draft during the 43-year history of its program and had at least one player chosen in each draft since 2000.
