SPORTS SCIENCE AND SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING FOR TEAMS AND ORGANIZATIONS
The Tampa Bay Rays selected JST Client and Eckerd outfielder Garrett Hiott, one of four Tritons picked in the 2019 MLB Draft.
The Tritons set a school record with four selections in the Major League Baseball draft. That’s as many as the University of Tampa and any other program in Division II, as many as Florida State. Within hours of Hiott's call from the Rays, Eckerd pitcher Dillon McCullough, second baseman Nick Conti, and Eckerd catcher Mitch Calandra felt a similar thrill. The Baltimore Orioles selected McCullough in the 27th round. The Atlanta Braves picked Calandra in the 30th. The New York Mets snagged Conti in the 39th.
2019 is Eckerd’s first winning season (31-19) since 2014, first conference title since 1981 and first trip to the NCAA regionals since 1987. Jodie Johnson and JST were critical contributors to the Athletes and Teams successes.
