Ex-Rider Star Green Chosen in MLB Draft

Former Rider Raider and OSU Cowboy Gage Green was taken by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 35th round of the Major League Baseball Draft on Wednesday.

Green, a two-time All-Big 12 first-team selection who also led Rider to the 2011 4A State Championship, was taken with the 1,062nd pick in the draft.

He split time between catcher and outfield for the Cowboys after starring behind the plate for the Raiders, playing for his father, Scot Green.
