After All-American seasons in 2014 and 2015 and with a potential third All-American selection this season, Auburn's Emily Carosone was selected No. 22 overall by the Chicago Bandits in the National Pro Fastpitch Draft on Thursday night.
Carosone is the fourth Tiger to be drafted, joining Morgan Estell (2015), Branndi Melero (2015) and Angel Bunner (2012).
The senior from Orlando, Florida, has had one of the greatest careers in program history. She ranks second in Auburn history in batting average (.403), runs (242), on base (.532) and slugging (.683). She's third in school history in home runs (40), doubles (49) and hits (249).
She also holds the most painful record in program history, being hit by 74 pitches in her career.
Carosone's final season has been a strong one, as she has earned 48 runs, 41 hits, 14 RBI and nine homers while being one of two players on the team to start every game this season (Kasey Cooper).
