    Think about this for a second and it will blow your mind.

    Since the draft started in 1965, 54 years ago, Mazey had 28 of 98 players drafted.  That’s 28%+ of ALL the players drafted in only 7 years.  AND he had 8%+ of ALL the players drafted just this year alone.

    This tells you how quickly Randy Mazey has brought this program along.  What the hell were all of the other coaches doing for the previous 47 years?  And people were up in arms when Ollie removed VanZant.

    In defense of some of the coaches previously, our facilities and conference affiliations in the past were not head turners to say the least.  The umpires that I know and conversed with all thought Van Zant was, shall we say flakey?  Was not upset when he was replaced.  Don’t want to diminish what Mazey has done, you can tell he has made significant progress here and hope he stays around.

    Facilities and school support were certainly turning points, along with the hiring of Mazey.

    On the other side, the baseball draft used to stretch to 60+ rounds so there are fewer draft slots now — 40 rounds this year. That makes the draft numbers for Mazey even more impressive.

    Other than Hammond, Mazey is the best find of any coach in any WVU program.
