Q&A with 5th Round Pick Luke Hopkins

With their third pick in the 2006 Draft the Toronto Blue Jays selected Luke Hopkins out of New Mexico State. Hopkins batted .403 this past-season with 16 home runs and 55 RBI. Hopkins sat down for a Q&A session with InsideTheDome after he was selected. Find out if the draft-eligible sophomore expects to sign a contract or return to college, what he was doing on draft day, and much more.

InsideTheDome: Luke, congratulations on being drafted. Tell us what were your first thoughts when you heard the Jays selected you? Luke Hopkins: I was real excited. I went to Toronto and worked out for the club, met their entire staff and felt comfortable with them. Everyone is extremely nice in that organization. They are really nice people and I am excited to play for them... Recommended Stories
