"A Former Emory University baseball standout David Hissey was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 50th round of the Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft on Thursday.

Hissey, who hails from the Philadelphia suburb of West Chester, PA, was selected with the 1,517th pick of the three-day draft.  He was one of 19 NCAA Division III players selected during the draft.

A four-year starter in the Emory outfield, Hissey finished his career as the school’s career leader in stolen bases (113), second in runs scored (180) and third in hits (237).  He compiled a .366 career average, six home runs and 96 runs batted in.

This season, Hissey was named to the ABCA all-South Region second team, and to the all-University Athletic Association (UAA) first team.  Hissey was the UAA’s Most Valuable Player in 2006.

Hissey is the fifth Eagle drafted since Emory reinstated its varsity program in 1991 after a 100-year absence.  Twin brothers and pitchers Scott and Jeff Kramer were both drafted in 1994, Scott in the 13th round by the Cleveland Indians and Jeff in the 30th round by the Milwaukee Brewers, and third baseman Andrew Pinckney was drafted in 2004 by the Boston Red Sox.  Last year, third baseman Frank Pfister was selected in the 17th round by the Cincinnati Reds, and is currently playing for their Class A affiliate.
