Former Warren East baseball star Mark Biggs had two great options this summer - head to the University of Louisville or play in the Toronto Blue Jays' organization after the team selected him in the eighth round of June's First-Year Player Draft.
In the end, Biggs decided to put his professional career on hold.
The Raiders' pitcher and third baseman will honor his letter of intent with the Cardinals, he confirmed to WBKO on Friday morning. The decision means that, unless Biggs' circumstances change, he's ineligible to be drafted again until after his junior year with the Cardinals.
Biggs led the Raiders to the KHSAA state quarterfinals as a senior, hitting .444 with 12 home runs and 47 RBI. But he was drafted as a pitcher, where he was 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA and 50 strikeouts in 36 innings pitched.
