Xavier’s Nick Zwack drafted by New York Mets in 2021 MLB Draft

The concrete of Nick Zwack's driveway in Monticello, Minnesota, knew he was there. It felt him pacing up and down anxiously as picks and rounds passed in this week's 2021 Major League Baseball Draft. 

"I paced up and down the driveway for two days straight," Zwack laughed.

The 6-foot-3, 230-pound left-handed pitcher, a recent graduate of Xavier University, could finally stop pacing Tuesday. 

Nick Zwack, who just completed his baseball career at Xavier University, was selected Tuesday by the New York Mets in the 17th round.

Zwack heard his grandmother yell from the backyard as his mom and his girlfriend, Sydney Schembri, a women's soccer player at Xavier, saw that he was drafted in the 17th round by the New York Mets.

"My girlfriend had the (MLB Draft) tracker up and she showed my parents and my sister because she didn't know what the Mets logo was," Zwack said. "That's right when I got a call from my advisor and he said, 'You're a Met.'
