MASON CITY — Former NIACC standout Brandon Williamson has been selected in the second round of the Major League Baseball draft. The Seattle Mariners used the 59th overall pick to select the left-handed pitcher who was part of the Texas Christian University team this past year. Williamson is coming off a season where he was 4-5 with a 4.19 ERA in 16 starts. Williamson, who came to NIACC as a non-scholarship player that threw in the low 80s as a freshman, was 8-4 with 104 strikeouts and 34 walks with a 3.14 earned run average in his sophomore season. He left NIACC as the career strikeout leader with 151 and he also set the school’s single-season strikeout record with his 104 Ks in 2018. It’s the second time that Wiliamson has been drafted, as he was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers last year in the 36th round.
