Fairport senior Conner Simonetti will await to hear his name in this year's Major League Baseball draft.

Simonetti has a chance to be selected in in either the top 10 or 20 rounds. The Cincinnati Reds, Minnesota Twins and Philadelphia Phillies have shown the most interest in the 18-year-old Simonetti.

The first baseman hit a Section V record 25 career home runs, and batted .618 this season.

Simonetti has committed to play at Kent State next year, but says he will consider forgoing college if the right situation comes along.
