Joe Tuschak Announces He Will Forego College and Sign With Mets

On Friday, Mets sixth round selection Joe Tuschak, ended his high school baseball career with a bang. 

Tuschak’s grand slam highlighted a six-run outburst in the fourth inning for Northern York in a 6-3 win Friday over Tunkhannock to take the Pennsylvania State Baseball Championship.

Immediately after the game, the highly regarded centerfielder spoke to reporters and then surprisingly announced that he would forego his college baseball commitment and sign a contract with the New York Mets.

It sounds like the Mets may have gone over slot to lure Tuschak to the Mets, but I’m just speculating as no details have been released by the Mets yet.

Here is Tuschak making his announcement:
