LAFAYETTE, La. – The top-ranked Ragin' Cajuns baseball team saw a record number of student-athletes drafted this season as two position players and three pitchers were selected on the final day of the 2014 MLB First Year Player Draft on Saturday.

Jace Conrad, Austin Robichaux, Ryan Leonards, Carson Baranik and Matt Plitt join Caleb Adams and Seth Harrison on the list of Louisiana players drafted this season. The seven draftees is one better than the six that were selected in both 1989 and 2000.

Conrad, the 2014 Sun Belt Player of the Year, was the first player taken on the final day in the 13th round by the Tampa Bay Rays.

Not long after Conrad was chosen, both second team All-Sun Belt selections Robichaux and Leonards had their names called as the Los Angeles Angels selected Robichaux in the 18th round and the Chicago White Sox picked Leonards in the 21st round.

The final two Cajuns selections came in rounds 33 and 37. The Los Angeles Dodgers took Baranik, the Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year, in the 33rd round, while Plitt was selected in the 37 round by Tampa.

Louisiana returns to action on Sunday at 8 p.m. at M.L. "Tigue" Moore Field as the Cajuns look to punch their ticket to Omaha with just one more win in a best-of-three super regional with Ole Miss.
