Suffolk Hall of Famers Selected in MLB Draft

Neal Heaton plays for the University of Miami baseball team.

As current events in sports take place, we’re trying to relate our Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame history to tell stories about our inductees.

The Major League Baseball Draft is no stranger to names from Long Island and Suffolk County.

During the draft, we spent time tweeting out information about the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame inductees who were selected by Major League teams. There have been 16 overall, including the top overall pick in 1979 – Neal Heaton – and many other first rounders.

There is one Baseball Hall of Famer (Biggio), one College Baseball Hall of Famer (Heaton), and a handful who went from high school to the pros.
