Dillon's Callahan selected by Red Sox in 2nd round

DILLON, SC (WMBF) - Dillon High School's Jamie Callahan was selected by the Boston Red Sox with the 87th overall pick of the 2012 Major League Baseball draft.

Callahan was a stand out player both ways for the Wildcats over his career.  As a senior he went 7-1 with a 0.89 ERA and 113 strike outs on the hill, while batting .408 with five home runs at the plate.

Just last week the Wildcat senior was named the Gatorade South Carolina Baseball Player of the Year.

According to TheBigSpur.com's John Whittle, with the 87th overall pick Callahan is slotted to receive a signing bonus of $565,600.

Callahan will have until July 13th to decide if he will sign a pro contract or attend college. Jamie has already signed his letter of intent to play at South Carolina.

The last Dillon High School player to be selected in the MLB Draft was L.A. Owens, who was taken by the Pirates in 2006.
