Columbia outfielder Dario Pizzano was selected by the Seattle Mariners in MLB’s amateur draft this evening in the 15th round, 461st overall.
Pizzano was recently named Ivy Player of the Year following his junior season in which he anchored the Lions’ offense with a .360 average, 16 doubles, 36 RBIs, and 31 walks. He also tied Gene Larkin on Columbia’s all-time home run list with 25 home runs.
If Pizzano were to sign with the Mariners, the Light Blue would surely miss its two-time team MVP. He was slated to play in the elite Cape Cod League this summer.
