Add yet another Effingham native who might make it to the big leagues...

Former St. Anthony Bulldog Ben Hecht was selected by the New York Mets in the 2013 MLB Draft. Hecht was drafted in the 31st round to the Mets, 926th overall pick.

Hecht recently committed to playing college baseball at Illinois State University.  He's the son of Jerry and Donna Hecht.  Donna said Saturday night that Ben is playing baseball out of town and they hadn't had the opportunity to discuss what he might do.

We'll have more details on all the area draftees as they become available.
