Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Two more former Huskies were selected in the final day of the Major League Baseball (MLB) First Year Player Draft, just a day after James Ramsay was also drafted.

On Saturday, former Duluth infielder Kevin Kuntz was taken in the 28th round by the Kansas City Royal. Kuntz attended Kansas University and played with the Huskies in 2011.

Then, later in the 28th round, the Washington Nationals drafted Joey Webb. Webb was a starting pitcher for the Huskies in 2012 and played college baseball at Menlo College.

Ramsay was taken 197th overall after leading the Northwoods league last summer with .381 batting average for the Huskies.
