Two Indians drafted

Catawba’s Joe Watson and Paul Kronenfeld were drafted on Sunday.
Watson, a 6-foot-3, 225- pound right-handed pitcher who also played wideout for Catawba’s football team, was drafted based on his enormous athletic potential.
Watson was a 12th-round pick by the Texas Rangers and was No. 366 overall.
A Davie County product, Watson, 21, is a junior. He was 1-2 with a 6.41 ERA in 13 appearances, including three starts this season, but his upside is tremendous if he figures out his mechanics and the strike zone. His fastball was clocked in the upper 90s by scouts this season.
In 27 inning this season, Watson struck out 31 and walked 21.
Kronenfeld, 22, is a senior first baseman and was an academic All-American. He was drafted by the Cincinatti Reds on the 25th round. He was the 755th overall pick.
Kronenfeld was outstanding in his two seasons at Catawba after transferring from Georgia Tech.
He is big (6-3, 225), runs well and is a lefty hitter. He has some versatility as he can play an outfield corner as well as first base.
He batted .361 for the Indians as a senior, with 54 runs and 43 RBIs. He belted six homers and a SAC-leading 21 doubles. He drew a team-high 34 walks in 55 games and posted a .446 on-base percentage.

Justin Allison (West Rowan) placed fifth in Saturday’s ARCA race at Pocono.
