Milford's Maxx Catapano drafted by Seattle
A couple other late rounders with state ties taken Wednesday: Mike Bourdon, a senior catcher at the University of Tampa and a Simsbury resident went to the Rays in the 42nd round. Bourdon was picked by Boston coming out of Northwest Catholic High School. His brother, Tom, was drafted last June but opted to attend Boston College.
James Lynch, an outfielder and pitcher at the Salisbury School, went to the Dodgers in the 45th round. Salisbury has emerged as quite the program of late, producing 2008 1st-round pick Anthony Hewitt (now a South Atlantic League all-star in the Phillies system) and Chris Dwyer, who pitched Clemson to the College World Series in his lone season, was drafted in the fourth round and is now a highly-regarded prospect in the Kansas City organization.
Max Krakowiak of Westport, a RHP out of Fordham, was taken by Seattle in the 48th round. David Elmore, a 2B at Yale, went to Milwaukee in the 49th round.
