IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa redshirt sophomore Adam Mazur became the highest-drafted Hawkeye in 32 years when he was selected in the second round of the 2022 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres on Sunday night. He was the 53rd overall pick and the highest ranked player in the Big Ten.

The Woodbury, Minnesota, native is Iowa’s longest-serving player since Tim Costo in 1990 when he was selected eighth overall by the Cleveland Indians. The last Hawkeye to be selected second was Wes Obermueller in 1999 (58th pick) by the Kansas City Royals.
