While browsing the latest picks in the 2009 MLB draft, I noticed the Orioles made an interesting selection in the 12th round.
With the 356th overall pick, the Orioles grabbed Virginia Tech outfielder Steve Bumbry.
Yes, that's the son of former Orioles center fielder Al Bumbry, who was a member of the organization's last World Series championship in 1983.
Orioles Magic? Perhaps.
Anyway, the younger Bumbry batted .283 with 10 home runs and 40 RBIs in 51 games for the Hokies this season. He was nine of 14 in stolen base attempts and scored 51 runs.
Bumbry was selected as The Baltimore Sun's All-Baltimore County Player of the Year in 2006 during his senior season at Dulaney. He was also honored on three consecutive All-Metro teams from 2004 to 2006.
