NORMAL – A local baseball product is headed to the majors. Normal West graduate McCade Brown was selected 79th overall by the Colorado Rockies in the 3rd round of the MLB Draft.
A 6-foot-6 right handed pitcher, Brown plays his college ball at Indiana University. He does have one more year of eligibility for the Hoosiers, but Brown told WJBC’s Marc Strauss he plans to sign with the Rockies.
