Reds draft Florida Gators 3B Jonathan India in 2018 Draft First Round

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY REDS MEDIA RELATIONS; COURTESY MLBpressbox.com

 

Was 2018 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year

Take University of Florida Infielder Fifth Overall

 

CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Reds Vice President of Amateur Scouting Chris Buckley announced the selection of INF Jonathan India (6’1″, 200), a junior from the University of Florida, with the team’s first pick (5th overall) of the 2018 first-year player draft.

 

Later tonight, the Reds will select their second and third players with overall picks 47 (2nd round) and 72 (competitive balance lottery round B).

 

“We think Jonathan is an extremely exciting athlete who can impact the game in many ways,” said Dick Williams, President of Baseball Operations. “He played very good defense at third base and has the athleticism to play elsewhere. As an accomplished and advanced college hitter, he should move quickly through the minor leagues. We are thrilled to add him to our organization.”

India, 21, was named 2018 SEC Player of the Year after batting .365 with 16 HR, 40 RBI and 11 stolen bases in 54 regular season games during his junior year at Florida. The Coral Springs (FL) native led the conference with a .506 on-base percentage and a .730 slugging percentage. He was selected as a semi-finalist for the prestigious Golden Spikes Award and entered the draft rated the fifth-best prospect by Baseball America.

 

This year for the Gators, India played primarily third base but also made several appearances at shortstop. He became just the 12th player in school history to amass in his career 20 or more home runs, 100 or more RBI and 30 or more stolen bases.

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY REDS MEDIA RELATIONS; COURTESY MLBpressbox.com

 

 

Available Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays

 

The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2018 bobblehead program in June, celebrating the two consecutive no-hitters thrown by Reds Hall of Famer Johnny Vander Meer in 1938.

This double bobblehead features Vander Meer in both his home and away uniforms and symbolizes the incredible feats accomplished on June 11, 1938 at Crosley Field vs. the Boston Bees and four days later on June 15 vs. the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field.

A four-time All-Star, Vander Meer boasted a 3.41 ERA over the course of his 11 seasons with the Reds while amassing 1,251 strikeouts. He also remains the only pitcher in MLB history to throw back-to-back no hitters, considered an “unbreakable” record.

He was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in its inaugural class in 1958.

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Friday, June 1 at 10 a.m., and will be available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of June, while supplies last.

Only 6,000 bobbleheads have been produced and there is a limit of one bobblehead per visitor per day.

The bobblehead series continues through September with a different Reds Hall of Famer available each month:
• April: Chris Sabo (available only with museum membership)
• May: Ernie Lombardi (available only with museum membership)
• June: Johnny Vander Meer
• July: Adam Dunn
• August: Tom Browning
• September: Johnny Bench

The best way to ensure a bobblehead is to join the museum as a member. To become a member, please visit RedsMuseum.org for more information or call (513) 765-7926.

“The NFL Coaching Clinic presents the opportunity for a peer-to-peer transfer of knowledge, technique and expertise among the best coaches,” said TROY VINCENT, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “Handing off the very best practices from one coaching generation to the next ensures the long-term viability and sustainability of the game.”

Led by a group of successful current and former coaches, this year’s faculty includes Bobby April, Larry Kirksey, Larry Marmie, Mike Pope, Jimmy Raye, Jim Skipper, Tony Sorrentino, Dave Wannstedt and Pro Football Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams.

Participants will learn the fundamentals and mechanics of coaching at different positions. Attendees will also participate in interactive sessions, including panel discussions and demonstrations. This year’s clinic focuses on the running back, wide receiver, tight end, defensive back, and special teams positions.

The program was expanded in 2018 to include select participants from the NFL’s pipeline diversity programming and high school football coaches.
