SECAUCUS, N.J. --- Fresno State junior outfielder Aaron Judge was drafted in the first round of the 2013 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft by the New York Yankees with the No. 32 overall selection on Thursday.

Judge, a native of Linden, Calif., is the 12th Bulldog to be taken the first round of the MLB amateur draft since 1972 and first since Matt Garza was selected by the Minnesota Twins as the 25th overall pick in the 2005 draft.

Judge, a three-time first-team all-conference selection, was one of three Mountain West players to be taken in the first round.

A total of 51 players under head coach Mike Batesole's tutelage have now been chosen to continue their professional careers by way of the annual draft.
