Fisher College is pleased to announce that Chris O'Hare has been drafted by Major League Baseball (MLB) to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Chris O'Hare was selected in the 23rd round of the 2013 MLB draft by the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, June 8, 2013. O'Hare is Fisher College's second player in the past three years to be drafted by MLB. The left-handed pitcher just finished up a record setting season at Fisher College where he was named the Association of Independent Institutions Pitcher of the Year. Additionally, he led the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics in six different categories and second in two others.

The Lynnfield, Massachusetts native finished with a 9-1 record and posted a 0.86 earned run average. His 110 strikeouts were second best in the NAIA and a new record for Fisher. O'Hare won six consecutive games without allowing an earned run in eight straight starts over the course of the season. He also went a stretch of 28 innings over six starts without allowing a runner to score. O'Hare's senior campaign ended with a 7 inning, 19 strikeout performance versus the State University of New York at Canton.

"This is a very exciting time for Chris and his family and the Fisher Baseball family," states Scott Dulin, Director of Athletics at Fisher College. "To have our second player drafted in three years means a lot to our program and all those involved. Chris was a great player for us this year and an even better teammate. We are all proud of him and I know he will represent Fisher College and compete well for the Phillies."

"We are very proud of Chris O'Hare having been drafted into Major League Baseball," states Dr. Thomas M. McGovern, President of Fisher College. "We take pride in our athletics programs at Fisher College and it is a great experience to watch this rising star take the next step in his career by joining the Philadelphia Phillies."
