Drafted Division III players

Macalester second baseman Mitch Glasser ’12 (Chicago, Ill. / The Latin School) has been drafted by his hometown team and favorite childhood team, the Chicago White Sox.  He was the ninth NCAA Division III player selected out of a total of just 12 in the 2012 draft and was picked in the 39th round.

A four-year standout for the Scots who has gained all-conference and all-region honors, Glasser batted .357 in his Macalester career with 95 runs driven in and 109 runs scored in 148 games.  He was successful on 31-of-37 stolen base attempts and over his last two seasons struck out just four times in 246 at-bats.  Glasser was a two-time Jewish Sports Review All-America selection.

Glasser’s 180 career hits are fourth on Macalester’s all-time list.  As a senior, he batted .325 with 10 stolen bases, and was picked to the Capital One Academic All-District team.  He is believed to be the first Macalester player selected in the major league draft.

“From a personal standout, I’m very happy for Mitch,” said Mac head coach Matt Parrington.  “He’s put so much into baseball and it is great to see him get this opportunity. Mitch is an all-around very good baseball player and we are excited to see how he'll do at the next level."
