SIGNED - Mets 31st Pick – RHP – Brendan Hardy – Harrison Central HS


          Jeff Haegar -

Harrison Central’s Brendan Hardy (RD 31/PK 920) will be signing his minor league contract with the New York Mets tomorrow in Port St. Lucie, FL. He’ll be foregoing his original commitment with JCJC to chase the dream



              RHP Brendan Hardy - R/R, 12/15/99 - Harrison Central HS - 6'4", 190

Hardy played the infield in shortstop in high school but the Mets announced him as a pitcher. Hardy struck out 69 out of the 240 guys he faced on the mound. The Mets will likely need to go over slot to get a deal done with him.

Per tweet, around 88 w/ Fastball, and breaker in the mid to high 70s. - Tickled 90 at one Perfect Game event

Hardy says he will make his decision today - "Hardy previously signed to play collegiately at Jones County JC, said he's "50/50" on whether or not he will sign to play professionally, and will make a decision by Thursday. However, the former Red Rebel is grateful to even be considering a professional baseball career."


            "I just want to thank God, especially," Hardy said. "Thank God and my parents. (Also) my teammates played a big part in it because they were just like family. That was my second family. I'm an only child, so they were my brothers, and they just always supported me no matter what."

Nice pick of high schooler Hardy in Round 31.
