Athletic Training Major Drafted by Cincinnati Reds!
Junior Athletic Training Major Bryan Gardner (Fairport/Fairport, NY), of the Ithaca College baseball team was selected on the second day of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft. Gardner was taken in the 34th round with selection number 1,019. Along with Shane Wolf (IC, class of 2008 drafted this year by the Houston Astros in the 26th round), they are the first Bombers drafted since the San Diego Padres took Cameron Smith in the third round in 1996. Although the details of Bryan's initiation into professional baseball have yet to be worked out, the athletic training program hopes to be able to help Bryan graduate and become an ATC; but if not, we wish Bryan the best of luck as he pursues his childhood dream to one day pitch in the major leagues! Congratulations Bryan!
