Dulin drafted to The Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals this past spring drafted MCC-Longview Lakers first baseman Brandon Dulin in the 12th round of the Major League Baseball draft.
Dulin, a Lee's Summit native, is a graduate of Lee's Summit North High School. The 6'3" freshman played for the Lakers during the 2012-2013 season and was named player of the year for Region 16 of the National Junior College Athletic Association.
Dulin had a standout season: He came in third in the NJCAA Division II for home runs with 13. He led the Lakers in doubles (17), RBIs (57), batting average (.376), slugging percentage (.727) and on-base plus slugging (1.177).
Dulin's 12th-round selection makes him the highest drafted Metropolitan Community College baseball player in the college's history. The MCC-Longview Lakers' and the MCC-Maple Woods Monarchs' rosters have included a number of players who have gone on to the big leagues, including all-star slugger Albert Pujols.
Maple Woods Baseball- A Special Year
This will be the last year of being the Maple Woods Monarchs. Head Coach Marty Kilgore and Assistant Coaches here at Maple Woods have worked really hard to put Maple Woods on the baseball map. Fortunately, we have successfully done that. Over 45 players have signed professional contracts, 3 making the big leagues, and have sent numerous kids to continue following the dream of becoming a professional athlete and getting an education through the game of baseball. With that being said, we are excited about the change to the Metropolitan Community College Wolves and hope to carry over the same success as years past.
