This is my kind of sports story.
Chris Singleton, whose mother was one of the victims in the South Carolina church shooting in 2015, was selected on the third and final day of the major league baseball draft today, going as the last pick of the 19th round to the Chicago Cubs.
ESPN reported that Singleton [pictured] just finished his junior season at Charleston Southern, where he was an outfielder.
He started all 51 games for the team, finishing the season with 18 stolen bases, 38 runs scored, 10 doubles and four home runs. He was among the nation's leaders with 10 outfield assists.
I'm glad the Cubs drafted Singleton, and I hope he someday plays for them.
