Steven Brault got drafted, bringing him one step closer to his major league dream
The ultimate goal for any serious college baseball player is to make the major leagues. Junior left-hander Steven Brault took a giant step in that direction this past June when he was selected in the Major League Baseball draft. Brault was taken in the 11th round by the Baltimore Orioles and became the second-highest draft pick in Regis history.
Brault, from El Cajon, Calif., was a star on the field and in the classroom. This spring his stellar ERA of 2.19 and outstanding GPA of 3.63 earned him Academic Player of the Year honors from the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. He finished with an 8-3 record and led the Rangers with 103 strikeouts.
“Regis has been the perfect place for me to learn more about the game,” said Brault. “I got to hit and pitch, which was not only fun, but was a good challenge and one that I really enjoyed. I also grew physically and I matured as a human being through the lessons I learned here.”
One of the most essential lessons he learned – the importance of living your values.
“What's the point of having values if you don't express them or live them out?” Brault said. “That is something Regis taught me that I have taken to heart.”
Brault recently reported to Orioles camp, where he will continue to live his values and chase his major league dream.
