Kevin Woods was selected in the fourth round of the 2013 Major League Draft by the Miami Marlins on the same day he graduated from Fort Mill High.
His fourth round selection made him the highest baseball player ever drafted out of Fort Mill High. He is the first Fort Mill baseball player picked since pitcher Hamilton Bennett was selected out of college in 2010 and the first since 2003 to be selected straight from Fort Mill High.
In his three years playing varsity baseball for Fort Mill, Woods hit .359 with 13 home runs and 59 RBIs in 81 games and had an on-base percentage of .548.
Woods signed a contract for $459,200 and hit .201 with a home run and six RBIs in 43 games for the Gulf Coast Marlins in the Gulf Coast League in 2013.
