Juran looks back on historic career
Fifty years later, Valparaiso's best pitcher in program history reminisces on his time with the Brown and Gold
Fifty years ago this month, Major League Baseball held the 1972 Amateur Draft.
Long after future superstars Dennis Eckersley, Gary Carter and Willie Randolph were selected, a tiny pitcher from Northwest Indiana finally received his phone call.
Valparaiso’s Tim Juran was selected by the New York Mets in the 44th round. He was the 786th overall pick. There were only 791 players drafted.
