Number 11 hit .353 with 79 base hits for Youngstown State this past spring. Dosch belted 8 homers while compiling 12 doubles and 42 RBIs.
For a Penguin to be drafted in the 7th round marked the earliest a YSU player had been taken since 2005 when Justin Thomas (LHP) was selected in the 4th round (113) by Seattle.
