The Orioles didn't take Austin Martin at #2 last night and folks are LOSING THEIR MINDS. We discussed that at the top of today's show-what do we make of the Orioles' selection of Heston Kjerstad? Early in Hour 1-the great Ben McDonald returned to the show-he originally put us onto Kjerstad as a potential option at #2. Is he good with the pick? And what does he think of #30 pick Jordan Westburg from Mississippi State? At the bottom of Hour 1, Kjerstad joined us again to react to being selected #2 overall-his dog's new internet fame and much more. Early in Hour 2, Baltimore native/Maryland basketball commit Ike Cornish checked in to tell us more about his decision to return home to play college basketball.
Heston Kjerstad was the SEC Freshman of the Year, an All-SEC and All-American performer during his Razorback career, in which he hit .345 with 35 home runs and 124 RBI over 145 games. But as good as he was in his time at Arkansas, did you know Kjerstad wasn’t highly touted or recruited as a high schooler? Dave Van Horn and his staff knew they had something special on their hands with the Amarillo, Texas, native. And Kjerstad delivered time and time again for the Razorbacks. He helped lead the Diamond Hogs to back-to-back trips to the College World Series, and became a fan favorite for his mammoth home runs. And while his Arkansas career was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic, his future in baseball is brighter than ever.

Lots to do on a Tuesday edition of GCR. Some more "real life" stuff and more thoughts on the MLB Draft. Speaking of which, MLB Network's Greg Amsinger joined us at the bottom of Hour 1 before he hosts their MLB Draft coverage. Does he think it's a sure thing that Vanderbilt's Austin Martin is the Orioles' pick at #2? Early in Hour 2, we caught up with Arkansas OF Heston Kjerstad-who some folks have connected to the Orioles with the second pick. He discussed his prodigious power and his relationship with Orioles prospect Blaine Knight. With picked apart Duke's insane argument against Name Image and Likeness then wrapped Hour 2 by chatting with former Terp Dino Gregory (Mount St. Joseph), whose brother was shot while protecting people at a protest in Seattle. Making things more interesting, Dino and their parents all work in law enforcement-which is at the center of the protest. And we wrapped the show by chatting with Derek Johnson, the director of the new "40 Years Of Rocky" documentary.
