Gonzales Selected #7 Overall by Pirates

Desert Speed School athlete and Cienega grad Nick Gonzales was selected 7th overall by the Pittsburgh Pirates in this year’s MLB draft, one of the highest selections ever for a Tucson player. Gonzales has gone from a lightly recruited high school player to a walk-on at New Mexico State – and eventually a two-time All-American, NCAA Player of the Year, and now top draft pick.
