Two SJ George Mason Players Drafted
George Mason junior catcher Chris Henderson and senior pitcher Mike Modica, who both were high school stars in South Jersey, were selected in the second day of Major League Baseball's First-Year Player Draft.
Henderson, a former standout at Cherokee, was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 21st round, the 637th overall selection.
Modica, a Washington Township graduate, was chosen on the 24th round by the Houston Astros, the 731st overall choice. It marks the third time that Modica has been drafted by Ed Wade.
The first came as a senior in high school when Wade was the Phillies general manager and Modica was a 45th round pick.
Now the general manager of Houston, Wade's Astros drafted Moidca on the 46th round last season.
And now it has happened a third time.
