Liberty Union's Jacob Miller chose by Miami Marlins at No. 46 by and large in 2022 MLB draft

The MLB draft isn't typically very much gone to by draft possibilities.

Yet, Liberty Union's Jacob Miller acknowledged his encouragement to go to the draft in Los Angeles,

and his choice ended up being worth the effort. With the No. 46 pick, the Miami Marlins chose Miller, a right-given pitcher.

When his name was called, Miller's inclination spilled over. "I'm puzzled," Miller told MLB Network's Lauren Gardner.

"It's a little glimpse of heaven. Simply realizing that I have my family despite my good faith, the whole local area behind me,

I can't depict how I feel at this moment." Across his three years of secondary school baseball — one year removed by the COVID-19 pandemic,

Miller made 27 beginnings and struck out 382 players in 172 innings. In his senior year, 

 he drove the Lions to the state last four interestingly beginning around 1964 with a 9-1 record and 133 strikeouts in 57 innings.
