Portsmouth, NH - The Seacoast Mavericks of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League have announced that five former or current players have been selected in the 2014 MLB Draft late last week.

Mike Daboul, president of the Seacoast Mavericks said "We are extremely proud of our current and former players that have been able to prove their abilities on our fields as well as their college fields and now get the dream of playing at the professional level. This is why we started this team and joined the Future's League - we are about giving kids a chance."

Going into their fourth season, the Mavericks have seen ten players taken in the MLB Draft. From the current Mavericks roster, shortstop Kelvin Ramos (San Jacinto Junior College) was selected in the 14th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in this year's draft. Outfielder Matt Brill (Appalachian State) and first baseman Logan Quimuyog (James Madison) were both taken in the 24th and 39th rounds by the New York Mets, respectively in the 2013 draft, but opted to attend college.

Outfielder Brian Langlois (Pepperdine University) was selected in the 20th round by the Washington Nationals. Langlois enjoyed a .375 batting average and 16 stolen bases in 32 games in the 2012 campaign.

Two other players from the 2012 season were selected this weekend also - Scott De Jong from the University of Connecticut and Felician College(32nd, Los Angeles Dodgers), and Donnie Hissa from the University of Notre Dame (21st, Milwaukee Brewers).

In previous drafts, pitchers Dennis Torres (28th, Baltimore Orioles) and Ruben Sosa (23rd, Houston Astros) were taken in 2012 and 2011, respectively. 2011 infielder Jerico Weitzel (27th, Minnesota Twins) was selected in the 2008 draft.
