Two Knights Selected on Draft Day Three

ORLANDO, Fla. – On the third and final day of the 2021 Major League Baseball Draft, the UCF baseball team saw catcher Josh Crouch (Detroit, 11th) and pitcher Jack Sinclair (Washington, 16th) picked in the final 10 rounds on Tuesday.
The Knights finished the draft with three players taken across the three-day event, marking the eighth time since 2010 UCF has sent at least three to the draft and 14 consecutive years with at least one player selected.
Josh Crouch is the fourth Knight to be selected by Detroit in the draft, and the first since Joe Rogers was picked in the fifth round in 2012. Sinclair also marks the fourth time that UCF sent someone to Washington, the last time came in 2005 when John-Michael Howell was selected in the 9th round.
Josh Crouch led the Knights at the plate, posting a team-high .311 batting average for the '21 campaign, the only UCF batter to eclipse the .300 mark. The Second Team All-Conference honoree also belted 15 homers on the year and ended the year with a .435 SLG% and 36 RBI.
Junior righty, Jack Sinclair made 17 appearances with 13 starts to end the year with a 5-5 record and a save. The Coral Springs, Fla. native wrapped up his final year in Orlando with a career-high in innings (66.0), strikeouts (42), and wins (5).
Head Coach Greg Lovelady has now worked with 52 MLB Draft picks during his 20-year coaching career. The Knights have had 111 players go through the draft.
