Conestoga grad Brendon Little drafted by Cubs in first round

With the 27th overall pick in Monday’s Major League Baseball Draft, the Chicago Cubs took a junior college left-hander named Brendon Little, who once ruled over the Central League as an ace at Conestoga High School.

Little and his commanding curve earned him a spot at North Carolina, but he transferred to State College of Florida in Sarasota after freshman year.

He opened a lot of eyes last summer with his work in the Cape Cod Summer League.

“Brendon Little is a physical left-handed pitcher who we feel is just tapping into his potential now, with a fastball in the low-to-mid ‘90s and what we believe to be one of the best curveballs in the Draft,” said Jason McLeod, the Cubs vice-president of scouting and development.
