Cressey Performance Representing the MLB Draft 2011

Share This:

WHEW!  Needless to say, the past few days have been pretty hectic at Cressey Performance.  With the MLB draft kicking in high gear, it’s not an exaggeration when I say we had at least two laptops tracking things as they went down.

As a matter of fact, we rang the cowbell everytime one of our guys was drafted.  Okay, not really – but that would have been pretty cool.

And, since I don’t feel like re-inventing the wheel today, below is a nice “review” that I’m going to re-post here from Eric’s blog that he put up earlier this morning. 

In addition to Tyler Beede, who went 21st overall to the Toronto Blue Jays, the following CP athletes were drafted and deserve a huge congratulations:

Jordan Cote: 3rd Round to the New York Yankees

Jack Leathersich: 5th Round to the New York Mets

Andrew Chin: 5th Round to the Toronto Blue Jays

Max Perlman 35th Round to the Oakland A’s

Ryan Thompson: 36th Round to the New York Yankees

Adam Ravenelle: 44th Round to the New York Yankees (a Cressey Performer since 8th Grade!)

Scott Weismann: 46th Rounds to the Chicago Cubs

John Gorman: 50th Round to the Boston Red Sox

In addition to these guys, several players who have done one-time consultations at CP and taken programs home with them to execute had some great draft showings: Anthony Meo (2nd Round – Arizona Diamondbacks), Travis Shaw (9th Round – Boston Red Sox), and John Brebbia (30th Round – New York Yankees) all deserve a congratulations as well.

We’re really proud of all our guys!

UPDATE:  Unfortunately, despite his best efforts, pitching coach Matt Blake was not taken.  Maybe next year Matt!

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
