Congratulations Milford Red Sox Players Jerrell Allen and Devon Reed. They were selected in the 11th and 20th rounds in the Minor League draft. Allen was drafted by the Kansas City Royals, and Reed by the Florida Marlins. Great news for some great players, but we'll miss them in the Legion games if they sign.

Former Delvets player Paul Cusick
