UGA Baseball Offseason: Kyle Farmer Picks Bulldogs Over Yankees

Junior shortstop Kyle Farmer was selected in the 38th round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the New York Yankees but has decided to return to Athens for his senior season with the Bulldogs.

"I have made a decision and I do want to come back for my senior year," Farmer said. "It was in my heart. My heart is with Georgia right now. I want to come back and win more games for the university. We've got a great freshman class coming in. We've got a great senior class. I want to come back and play with those guys and take this team to where it needs to be. I want to make the university proud."

Farmer was one of Georgia's key contributors offensively during the 2012 season hitting .302 with four homers and 41 RBIs. He has helped anchor the Bulldogs' defense up the middle from the shortstop position and figures to do so once again next season.
