TITUSVILLE - The date was June 3, 2019. Vanderbilt had just wrapped up a 12-1 victory over Indiana State the day before in the NCAA Regional. But, that was not necessarily the only thing on Titusville-native and star-Vanderbilt outfielder JJ Bleday's mind.
Bleday was preparing for a day that he had dreamed of his entire life; the day every baseball player, or any athlete for that matter, dreams of from the moment they can walk. Draft day.
