History

Wolverines Baseball boasts of a long and proud tradition of sending athletes to play collegiate, minor and major league baseball. Since its inception, the Wolverine program has sent players to Division I colleges as well as the minors/major leagues.

Wellington boasts a State Championship in 1999, two-time State Runner-Up (1993, 2001), five Final Four appearances (1993, 1995, 1999, 2000, 2001), four Sectional Championships, five Regional Championships, eight District Championships and 11 Conference Championships.

Scouts look to Wolverine Baseball as a source for potential players for their rosters. In fact, when the Pittsburgh Pirates drafted Sean Burnett and Bobby Bradley in 1999, it was the first time a pro team had used consecutive first-round picks on players from the same high school.

In The Majors:PAW

  • Sean Burnett – Los Angeles Angels
    Burnett was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the first round in 2000 Major League Baseball Draft. Known for his change-up, remarkable control, presence, and a low-90s fastball. Burnett was the Pirates Minor League Pitcher of the Year in 2001 and 2002, and 2002 Carolina League Pitcher of the Year. Baseball America named him the Carolina League’s #1 prospect, and the Pirates #2 prospect. After a stint with the Washington Nationals, he is now a relief pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels.
  • Kevin Siegrist – St. Louis Cardinals
    The Cardinals drafted Siegrist in the 41st round of the 2008 MLB Draft, and he spent the summer playing for the Gulf Coast League Cardinals. After graduation from Wellington, he attended Palm Beach State College, where he was a walk-on with the “Panthers” baseball team. Siegrist was discovered by baseball scouts purely by accident when a scout attending a Palm Beach State game to watch another player took notice of Siegrist’s performance.
  • Bobby Bradley – Pittsburgh Pirates
    A High School All-American, Bradley was chosen by the Pittsburgh Pirates with the 8th overall selection in the 1999 MLB Draft. Though he signed a letter of intent to play college ball with Florida State University, Bradley signed with the the Pirates for a $2.3 million bonus. Bradley participated in the All-Star Futures Game in 2000. Prior to the 2001 season, Baseball America rated Bradley as the #20 prospect in baseball.
