Three Draft Picks Still on the Road to Omaha

Three of the Astros' selections in this week's draft are scheduled to play in the Super Regionals of the NCAA Division I Tournament this weekend.  If the national seedings hold true, all three of them could be meeting in the National Championship Series in Omaha at the end of the month.

8th round pick Tyler Heineman, C, is a member of the UCLA squad, which is the #2 over-all seed on the road to Omaha.  The Bruins begin a best of three super-regional against TCU today in Los Angeles.

2nd round pick Nolan Fontana, SS and 7th Round pick Preston Tucker, OF are members of the the #1 seeded Florida Gators.  The Gators host a super-regional against North Carolina St. beginning Saturday in Gainesville.

All three players played in all three of their teams' three games during last weekend's regionals.

Heineman- 3 for 12 with one double, two runs scored an one RBI.

Tucker- 5 for 13 with one double, one home run, four runs scored and two RBI.

Fontana- 4 for 11 with four runs scored and two RBI.
