Cocalico senior shortstop Nick Lucky was among two-dozen baseball players with Pennsylvania ties to be selected in the 2018 MLB First-Year Player Draft.

Lucky, a Coastal Carolina recruit, was picked in the 14th round Wednesday by the Boston Red Sox. Lucky was the state’s third high school prospect to be selected after Muhlenberg second baseman Sean Guilbe was picked by the San Diego Padres in round 12.

Penn Charter OF Mike Siani was a fourth-round pick by the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.

Lucky, drafted as a second baseman, hit .541 over 20 games this season, helping Cocalico go 13-7 overall. Lucky totaled 16 extra-base hits, including four home runs, and had 25 RBIs.

Guilbe, who was ranked as the 155th-best prospect in the draft by MLB.com, is signed to play at Tennessee. Siani, Pa.’s reigning Gatorade Player of the Year and Virginia recruit, was a fourth-round pick by Cincinnati.
