Matt Litwicki, a pitcher from University of Indiana, was selected by the Boston Red Sox in the 10th round 286 overall in the 2021 MLB Draft.
Litwicki describes the draft process being from Indiana: “The draft process for me was a very exciting and quick time. I never saw myself as a player that would be getting drafted, especially not by a historic team such as the Red Sox. The day of the draft I was with my immediate family and my girlfriend and I don’t think I ate or said a word from the first pick of the second day all the way until my name was finally called. It was a surreal feeling of just complete happiness and pride. I put a lot of work into developing as a player and a person and I’m so glad to see the fruit of my labor begin to fall into place.
Litwicki also talked about how he felt getting drafted by the Red Sox: “Being drafted by the Red Sox is something that is like a dream come true. To be part of such a world famous and historic team is something that I take a lot of pride in. I cannot thank my coaches before me, my family, and Alonzo Wright enough for all they have done and continue to do to make sure I can be the type of player I have been striving to be.”
Litwicki informs me of what he is looking forward to most in 2022 baseball. “Honestly, what I’m most excited for when it comes to 2022 baseball is to meet a bunch of new teammates and make bonds with them all while playing the best sport on the planet.”
Litwicki mentions who he is most excited to get to play with in the organization? “Oh, wow that’s a tough question man. I’m just excited to play with all the guys I’ve been meeting in the organization. No one really sticks out in my mind; I’m just looking forward to it.”
