PITTSBURGH – Carson-Newman catcher Ethan Goforth became the third Eagle in the last two years to hear his name called on draft day when the Pittsburgh Pirates selected him in the 25th round Wednesday in the 2019 Major League Baseball Draft.

“Getting drafted means everything to me,” Goforth said. “It’s been a dream since I was a kid but I wouldn’t be anywhere near this without my family, my coaches, my teammates and my friends.”
