USAFA, Colo. Nic Ready Selected by the Miami Marlins in 2019 MLB Draft.
He is the 10th Falcon baseball player to be drafted all-time.

Recently graduated Air Force Academy baseball player Nic Ready
was selected in the 23rd round, 681st overall, by the Miami Marlins in the 2019 Major League Baseball First-Year Draft Wednesday afternoon, June 5.

Ready becomes the 10th Falcon baseball player to be drafted all-time into the MLB.

By being selected in the 23rd round, Ready is the fourth-highest MLB draft pick in program history. He is the first Falcon to be drafted by the Marlins organization all-time. With the selection, Air Force has now had six players drafted in the last seven MLB drafts.

Ready closed his remarkable Falcon career with his fourth straight
all-conference honor, as he was named Second Team All-Mountain West Conference at the conclusion of the season. It made him the first Air Force player to be a four-time all-conference honoree, as he was named to the first team last season, and the second team as a freshman and sophomore. Ready was also a Freshman All-American in 2016, as well as a Third Team All-American in 2018.
