The baseball program at Western Kentucky University is strong enough, that practically every season has seen at least one player drafted by Major League Baseball, and sometimes there can be quite a few. In their 1st place season of 2009, 5 players were chosen (plus another as a free agent) including Wade Gaynor (3rd round) who hit a 2nd best ever 25 HR here (and 3rd best 78 RBI) in 2009.
