2014 MLB Draft: Dodgers pick Billy Bereszniewicz in 28th round

Binghamton University

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Saturday selected center fielder Billy Bereszniewicz out of Binghamton in the 28th round of the 2014 MLB Draft, the No. 849 overall pick.

The 5'10, 180-pound left-hander hit .367/.428/.471 with 12 doubles and five triples with 43 runs scored in 52 games as a senior at Binghamton, and stole 23 bases in 26 attempts. He was named first-team All America East after leading the conference in 2014 in batting average, hits (77), steals and triples.

"I’m thrilled for Billy ... nobody has worked harder for this opportunity," Binghamton head coach Tim Sinicki said in a release by the school. "There is no doubt in my mind he’ll make the most of it. He turned himself into a dynamic player on both sides of the ball and was without question our most valuable player this spring."

Bereszniewicz played his high school ball at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional HS in Sudbury, Mass.

Credit this pick to Dodgers scout Rich Delucia.

Bereszniewicz is the third player the Dodgers have drafted from Binghamton. The other two were both picked in 1990, when the Dodgers took catcher Daniel Gray in the seventh round and outfielder Dirk Gorman in the 48th round. Neither made it past advanced Class-A.
