Former Bomber Star Jerry Mulderig drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates

Former Bomber and current Rider University Star Jerry Mulderig was drafted in the 28th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 2013 MLB Draft. Check out the links below for some articles on the selection. This season, Jerry was a first-team all-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference selection and a first-team all-Jersey pick as a designated hitter. Even more impressive, as a behavioral neuroscience major, he was a member of the MAAC all-Academic team.

We could not be happier for both Jerry & his family on this amazing accomplishment.
