GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO)-- Grand Junction's Casey Burns and Montrose's Zane Hemond can check another achievement off their lists.
The two recent-high school graduates were drafted during Day Three of the 2012 MLB Entry Draft on Wednesday.
Burns was taken his hometown team, the Colorado Rockies, in the 37th round. Although he calls it an incredible honor, Burns is forgoing his first bid into the MLB in order to attend St. Mary's College in California.
Zane Hemond heard his name called during the final round of the third day. The Arizona Diamondbacks selected the right-handed pitcher with their 40th round selection.
