James Ramsey, lovingly referred to as “Rammer” by fans of Florida State Seminoles Baseball, was selected 23rd overall tonight in Major League Baseball’s first year player draft by the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals. One year after being drafted in the 22nd round by the Minnesota Twins and declining the invitation to instead come back to Tallahassee, the FSU captain (the first in the history of the school to ever earn the ‘C’ on his jersey) has his Seminoles ready to face Stanford in the Super Regionals this weekend with a trip to Omaha and the College World Series on the line. Ramsey is the perfect example of what a student-athlete should be and he is a role model for everything that he has done off the field for the Tallahassee community and for Alpharetta, Georgia where he grew up. In addition he is a pretty darn good baseball player as shown by his nomination as a semi-finalist for the Golden Spikes Award in which he should be in serious contention to win. Ramsey is a great man, a true Nole, and an inspiration to us all.
