Danny Hultzen Gives Back to Virginia Baseball
We were just sent a link from the good people at the University of Virginia, sharing with us that Danny Hultzen has made a $100,000 commitment to the baseball program for improvements to UVa’s Davenport Field. Hultzen was selected second overall in the 2011 MLB Draft by the Mariners, after an All-American career at Virginia.
“I am thrilled and honored to contribute back to the Virginia baseball program,” Hultzen said in the news release. “Virginia has done so much for me. My experiences at UVa have been critical in helping me grow into the player and the man that I am today, and I would not be where I am without my time there. I had an amazing experience at Virginia, and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to give back to UVa and help the program and its players remain among the best in college baseball.”

Hultzen had a dominant debut in the Arizona Fall League, posting a 1-0 record with a 1.40 ERA (3 ER, 19.1 IP) in 6 starts with the Peoria Javelinas.
