Pontotoc’s Delvin Zinn will postpone his chance at professional baseball.
Zinn was selected in the 28th round (833rd overall) by the Chicago Cubs in the MLB Draft on Wednesday but has decided to honor his commitment to play shortstop at Mississippi State.
Zinn hit .296 as a senior with seven doubles, a home run and 17 RBIs.
Fellow Bulldogs signee Jared Padgett also turned down a contract with the Cubs.
Greg Pickett agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Phillies. MSU now awaits the decisions of Austin Riley, Gray Fenter and Elih Marrero.
