Future Stars Series Sees Record-Breaking 30 Alumni Taken In 2022 MLB Draft

July 26, 2022

The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series is at it again, shattering last year’s records for alumni being selected in the Draft.

For the 2022 MLB Draft there were a record-breaking five FSS alums selected in the first round, with Termarr Johnson, Cam Collier, Cooper Hjerpe, Drew Gilbert and Robby Snelling all being picked. In all, ten alumni went on the first day, and 18 in the first 200 picks, with ultimately a total of 30 players who’ve come through the Future Stars Series hearing their names called.

An additional three players were also added as undrafted free agents, giving a total of 33 players headed to pro ball once the dust had settled.

“I’m just happy that the kids seemed to get something out of it,” said CEO and president of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth.

“I’m happy that this has grown to where it is, I’m happy about the imminent next steps and the expansion with New Balance. I’m happy for the expansion with some other groups that are joining us here shortly and how that’s going to affect the game as a whole. But, to have 30 guys from across the events that we’ve had — especially given the changes in the draft from when we’ve started with it being a way different market than it was when we first began — and to be able to see those numbers continue to grow in a draft that is constantly evolving and for us to be able to help these kids get somewhere, it’s really gratifying to be a part of that process.”
