Tad Gold, a 2010 MVRHS graduate, was drafted Saturday by the Baltimore Orioles in the 35th round of the Major League Baseball Draft, confirmed Sharks GM Gerry Murphy.

Saturday night, Mr. Gold was honored by the Martha’s Vineyard Sharks, prior to the start of their scheduled game with the Brockton Rocks. He was celebrated for starting for the Sharks for three years,  where he played outfield. He was also a Sharks All-Star. As a recently graduated college senior, Mr. Gold is ineligible to play this season for the Sharks.

Last month, Mr. Gold was named the Division III college player of the year. He played for Endicott College in Beverly.
