Curtis goes to St. Louis

UCLA third baseman Jermaine Curtis, a graduate of Miller High School, joined the MLB Draft party a few minutes ago, as the St. Louis Cardinals took him in the fifth round with the 155th pick of the draft. Curtis, who could be moved to second base by the Cardinals, overcame a slow start to the 2008 season to hit .306 with two home runs and 26 RBI.

Curtis, a standout player with the Rebels, established himself as a high draft-pick with his performance last summer in the Cape Cod League, a summer league in Massachusetts that uses wood bats instead of the aluminum used at the college level. Curtis was an all-star selection in the Cape Cod, setting the stage for his selection by the 2006 World Series champions.
