Kevin Cron will have rather important decision to mull over in a few weeks.

The Mountain Pointe senior has already committed to Texas Christian University to continues his baseball career, but after two straight impressive seasons he will be taken in the first three rounds, if not the first round, of the MLB first-year player draft on June 6.

I talked to him after the state championship game and he was wanting to take in the moment rather than talk about future, but admitted it is going to be a tough decision.

"We will see how the process goes," Cron said after giving out hugs and signing autographs in the stands at Camelback Ranch Stadium. "I'll be honored to be drafted by any team, but I will see what the best option for me is."

His father, Chris, is the manager the Detroit Tigers' Double A team in Erie so chances are the organization would take him at some point, but some of the mock drafts have him going pretty high.

One site - - has him taken 55th overall in the supplemental first round to the Minnesota Twins.

He will be the third Cron drafted as C.J. was taken in 44th round out of Mountain Pointe by the Chicago White Sox. The same mock draft has him being selected by the Milwuakee Brewers with the 15th pick overall.

Their father was originally a second round pick in the 1984 amateur draft by the Atlanta Braves. He played in 1,250 minor league games and appeared in a total of 12 major league games (Six with the California Angels in 1991 and six with the White Sox in 1992). His playing career spanned 11 seasons from 1984-1995.
