Bobby Crocker Drafted by Oakland A's in 4th Round

Crocker graduated from Aptos High School in 2008.

On Tuesday afternoon, in the fourth round of the 2011 MLB Draft, the Oakland Athletics selected Aromas native Bobby Crocker, the Aptos High School 2008 graduate, who has attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo the past three years.

This season, as a junior, the center fielder hit .339 with five home runs, 20 RBI and nine stolen bases.

"It's well-deserved. He's an extremely hard worker. This has been a goal of his for a long, long time," Cal Poly coach Larry Lee told Patch on Tuesday.

Crocker was also selected by Oakland back in 2008, but opted for college instead, as he was not picked until the 38th round. 

At Aptos, the Soquel-born Crocker led his team to two Santa Cruz Coast Athletic League titles.

Stay tuned to Patch for further coverage of this career milestone for Crocker.
