Missouri seniors Phil McCormick and Zack Hardoin and junior Conner Mach were drafted on the final day of the 2011 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday.

McCormick was selected in the 31st round by the San Francisco Giants as the 957th overall pick. McCormick, a left-handed pitcher, closed games for the Tigers. He is from Wildwood.

In 2010, McCormick set a school record with 36 appearances for the Tigers. He matched that mark again in 2011, and pitched in 106 games throughout his college career, falling just two appearances short of the school record. 

Mach, an infielder, was drafted in the 46th round, 1,409th overall, by the New York Yankees. Mach is from Chesterfield.

Hardoin, also a left-handed pitcher, was drafted in the 47th round with the 1,420th pick by the Houston Astros. Hardoin grew up near Houston in Spring, Texas.

Junior Matt Stites was drafted in the 17th round by the San Diego Padres on Tuesday.
