Through 24 rounds of the Major League Baseball draft, no WPIAL high school player has been selected. But the Pirates picked a former WPIAL player.
In the 21st round, the Pirates selected Penn State first baseman Jordan Steranka, who is a graduate of Mt. Lebanon High School. Steranka had a big senior season at Penn State. He was second in the Big Ten Conference in batting average (.363), first in slugging percentage (.615), first in doubles (20) and third in home runs (11). He was a first-team all-Big Ten selection.
Through 24 rounds, only one high school player from Pennsylvania was selected - Joe DeCarlo of Garnet Valley High School in eastern Pa.
