Chatfield graduate Matthew Jarecki winds up at the plate in a game with his Detroit Tigers rookie affiliate team. Jarecki was taken by the Tigers in the 37th round of the MLB draft, and hopes to continue his career past Benedictine College for as long as he can.
Chatfield’s Jarecki becomes a pro Tiger

During the 2018 Major League Baseball draft, Chatfield graduate Matthew Jarecki achieved a feat that many young diamond players dream of. He heard his name called by the Detroit Tigers in the 37th round (1,095th overall).

For the 22-year-old outfielder, however, that dream never really surfaced until just a couple years ago, three years into his career at Benedictine College in Kansas.
