This also marks the second straight year that Seattle U has had multiple players selected in the same draft.
Carpenter was a First Team All-Conference selection in 2016 as the Redhawks’ starting third baseman, also earning weekly honors from the conference on Apr. 4 after hitting a perfect 5-for-5 in a 4-3 10 inning victory vs. Portland on Mar. 29.
McCann started 38 games at catcher for Seattle U in 2016 with the team’s fourth highest batting average (.319), accumulating 28 runs, nine doubles, two home runs, and 15 RBIs. Also excelling academically, he was an Academic All-WAC selection in 2015.
For the third straight season, Seattle U improved upon their single season wins record and won the program’s first regular season conference title.
