Cardinals Nab Zawacki Before Deadline

Brett Zawacki, a prep All-American from Illinois, has signed a professional contract with the St. Louis Cardinals. Zawacki, a RHP from LaSalle-Peru Township, Peru, Illinois, was the Cardinals 12th round draft choice. Had he not signed a pro contract prior to the August 15th deadline, Brett was scheduled to attend Arizona State on a very large scholarship offer.

"Brett was certainly one of the premier high school pitchers in the country, and looks forward to the challenges of pro ball. After months of dialogue, it was a win win situation for everyone involved. The Cardinals added a premier pitcher to their organization, and the Zawacki family was able to receive a compensation package well over 12th round slot", said Drana Group representative Stefano Bando.
