Matt LaPorta drafted #7 overall
University of Florida player Matt LaPorta was the 7th overall selection by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft. LaPorta is the second highest selection overall by a Florida player. John Burke was selected sixth by the Houston Astros in 1991.
LaPorta was drafted in the 14th round last season by the Boston Red Sox. There is a possibility that LaPorta might be asked to move to left field because of the Brewers infield depth. Matt will be a special guest on the Gator Country Radio Show tomorrow morning.
Florida signee Tommy Toledo of Tampa Alonso was selected by the San Diego Padres in the 3rd round, pick 117.
Florida signee John Talisano, a shortstop from Estero was selcted by the Toronto Blue Jays with pick #85. It’s doubtful that he’ll ever suit up for the Gators.
