Top 10 of 11-12: Nunn drafted, makes Sportscenter Top 10

Friday, July 06, 2012

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Two big phone calls came in to the 615 area code this spring as a result of junior southpaw Chris Nunn.

The first came on May 16 when the call from Bristol, Conn. came asking permission to air the footage of Nunn's spectacular behind-the-back grab. The phone then rang again on June 6 as Nunn was chosen by the San Diego Padres in the 24th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball draft.

Nunn would go on to sign with the Padres the next week and is 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in 6.2 IP.  The lefty has also fanned 11 batters and issued only a pair of walks.
