Willie Carmona was the Phillies' 11th round draft pick this year. The 5-foot-11-inch 185-pound switch hitter played college ball at Stony Brook University, where he helped the Seawolves reach the College World Series as their third baseman.
Following the draft, the 21-year-old began his pro career with the Gulf Coast League Phillies and tallied a .348 average with 2 HR and 20 RBI in 25 games before he was promoted to Class A Lakewood. Carmona, manning first base for the BlueClaws, got off to a slow start, batting .141 through his first 17 games, but in three games since then, the New York native is 6-for-11 with 2 HR and 5 RBI.
Recently, I spoke with Willie about his draft experience, his positional preference, being a Philadelphia Eagles fan and much more. Check out the media player below to hear that full interview.
