Two of the stars of the 2018 Notre Dame Fighting Irish baseball team were picked up in the 2018 MLB Draft on Tuesday night.

Centerfielder, Matt Vierling, was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the fifth round with the 137th pick overall.

Just a bit later, second baseman Nick Podkul was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the seventh round with the 206th pick overall.

Both Podkul and Vierling were All-ACC selections this past year, and now they will try to prove themselves on the next level.

Congratulations to both Nick and Matt on a job well done, and good luck to both in the future.
