CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson shortstop Logan Davidson was selected in the first round of the MLB draft Monday night. The Oakland A's picked Logan 29th overall.

The Tigers now have back to back first round picks. Seth Beer went 15th overall last year.

Logan is the first player in program history to have 10 or more home runs and over 10 stolen bases in three different years.

The Charlotte native was a first team freshman All-American and was a third team All-American in 2018. 

This year Logan led the Tigers in doubles, walks and was second on the team in home runs with 15. He has been a second team All-ACC pick the last two years as well.

Logan is now the 15th first round MLB draft pick in Clemson history.
