Aacc Shortstop Selected By Toronto In Draft

Pioneers' Srebroski Considers Turning Pro

June 06, 1991

Andy Srebroski, the 1990 Anne Arundel County Sun Baseball Player of the Year, has been selected in the Major League Baseball free agent draft by the Toronto Blue Jays.

Srebroski, a Northeast High grad, played shortstop at Anne Arundel Community College this spring.

"I received a Mail-o-gram (Wednesday), and it said they had drafted me and would contact me within 15 days about signing a professional baseball contract," said Srebroski.

"I was kind of surprised, but excited and relieved. They (Toronto) contacted me back in May and said they were interested in me as a shortstop, but I didn't want to tell anybody and mess it up. So, I kept it quiet."

Srebroski batted.379 with four home runs and five triples this spring for the nationally ranked Pioneers.

"I'm not sure if I will sign or not," he said. "I'll have to see what they say and what they offer me."

Srebroski hit .553 (second highest in county history) last year for the 22-1 Northeast Eagles and set county and state records for hits and runsin a season with 47 each.

Srebroski also impressed a host of major-league scouts while playing last June in Florida for the first Maryland State High School All-Star Team.

"The Blue Jays told me they like me as a shortstop and that I have potential there, and I'm just thrilled I was picked," said Srebroski.
