Congratulations to pitcher Alex Webb, who was selected in the ninth round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Cincinnati Reds on Friday.
Webb pitched for the Falcons last season and was the opening day starter. He finished the season at 2-2 with a 2.60 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 27.2 innings. He made 12 appearances last summer.
He joins former Falcons pitcher Curtis Tayler who was also drafted on Wednesday by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The Falcons will play a doubleheader with the Victoria Harbourcats on Saturday at 5:00pm and 7:00pm. Both games will be seven innings.
