Four more Mizzou players selected in baseball draft

Jacob Priday, Ryan Lollis and Kurt Calvert - all Missouri outfielders - and shortstop Lee Fischer were selected in the second day of the Major League Baseball Draft.

That brings to six the number of Tigers drafted in the two days of the draft.

Pitcher Aaron Crow was selected ninth overall in the first round on Thursday by Washington. Pitcher Rick Zagone was taken 176th overall in the sixth round by Baltimore later on the first day.

Priday - a senior from Sikeston, Mo., who hit .332 with 16 home runs and was the first team All-Big 12 designated hitter - was picked No. 332 overall by Houston in the 11th round on Friday.

Lollis - a junior from Houston, who hit .339 with 17 doubles and was an honorable mention all-conference - was taken No. 613 overall in the 20th round by Detroit.

Calvert - a senior from Wildwood, Mo., hit .302 and was taken No. 971 by the Chicago Cubs in the 32nd round.

Fischer, a senior, hit only .217 and started just 25 games but was taken by the Chicago White Sox in the 46th round.
