Kyle Cody: "I knew that if it wasn't in the second day like in the third or second round, I knew I'd fall a lot because that's where we told them that we would go to the MLB. So yeah, I knew I was going to fall a lot after that. But I'm just happy and very honored to be able to be part of the draft too. They're gonna send us an offer in the next couple of days and we're gonna talk about it as a family, and we're gonna see what the best possible situations for me is."
