WBU's Weldon Taken By Mets in MLB Draft

PLAINVIEW, TX - Wayland Baptist right-handed pitcher Todd Weldon was drafted in the 27th round by the New York Mets late this afternoon. Weldon becomes the first Pioneer taken in the Major League Baseball draft since J.J. Peirce in 2001.

A 6'5, 215 pounder flame thrower from Carlsbad, NM, Weldon led the Pioneers in wins during the past two seasons and set a school record for strikeouts in a season in 2009 with 120. He won 19 of the 30 games in which he started at Wayland, striking out 219 batters in 166-1/3 innings of work, and had four shutouts.

Weldon, the 812th player selected in the draft, was the second draftee from the Sooner Athletic Conference. Lubbock Christian catcher Joe Staley was an eighth round selection of the San Franciso Giants.
