Three Red Sox Make ESPN's All-College World Series Team Of MLB Players

Three current members of the Boston Red Sox have been named to ESPN's All-College World Series Team of current active major leaguers. Andrew Benintendi (Arkansas—2015), Jackie Bradley, Jr. (South Carolina—2010, 2011) and Brian Johnson (Florida—2010, 2011, 2012) made the 25-man roster. Also making the squad was former Carmine Hoser Andrew Miller (North Carolina—2006). Benintendi was initially drafted by his hometown Reds, but chose to be a Razorback—after which he was drafted by Boston with the 7th overall pick in 2015. JBJ led South Carolina to back-to-back College World Series Championships. After his time with the Florida Gators, Johnson was snagged by the Red Sox with the 31st overall pick of the draft. The 2018 College World Series is taking place this week in Omaha, Nebraska.
