Cal Quantrill Drafted 8Th Overall By Padres
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Thursday, June 9, 2016
Congratulations to Terrier's alumni Cal Quantrill who was drafted today in the first round,8th overall by the San Diego Padres. This makes Cal the highest drafted Terrier or Terriers alumni ever.

Cal spent three years with the program, highlighted by throwing a one hitter in a championship game victory of the 201117u World Series in Nashville. During that time he also pitched for Ontario at the Canada Cup and for the JNT at the World Championship in Korea. During his junior year with the Terriers Cal earned a scholarship to attend Stanford University. As a senior he was drafted by the Yankees in the 26th round, but chose the college experience. Cal pitches off a 90-94 MPH fastball with sinking life and a very advanced changeup with similar life and action. He has also thrown both a slider and a curve ball in the 78-80 MPH range as part of his arsenal. In 2014 at Stanford, Cal was the ‎first freshman to start for the Cardinals on opening day since Mike Mussina did it in 1988. In 17 starts that year Cal garnered a sparkling 2.68 ERA. He lead in innings pitched (110 2/3) and strikeouts (98). At season's end he was named Louisville Slugger All- American, PAC-12 Freshman of the Year and All PAC-12‎. Cal's accomplishments are not limited to his baseball abilities alone however. Academically, Cal is brilliant. In just over three years at Stanford he has earned a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Management Science and Engineering. The entire Terriers organization is very proud of Cal, happy for his family and wish him the best of luck as he embarks on his professional baseball career.
