A.J. Graffanino Takes Aim at Major Leagues

University of Washington junior shortstop A.J. Graffanino is hoping to help the Huskies play in their first-ever College World Series this season, but his longer-term sights are set on playing in the Major Leagues, like his father Tony did for 13 seasons.

A.J. was selected out of high school by the Cleveland Indians in the 26th round of the 2015 MLB Draft.  However, he chose to attend the University of Washington instead.  He was an All-Pac-12 honorable mention selection last year.

Tony Graffanino played for seven different big-league clubs during 1996 and 2009.  He served primarily as a reserve infielder during his career.  He played for the Atlanta Braves in 1997 and 1998, when they lost the NLCS to Florida and San Diego.
