NORTH KINGSTOWN -- Lincoln High senior Nick Zammarelli was busy taking grounders at shortstop prior to his team's Division I baseball playoff game against North Kingstown when the good news came down - the Boston Red Sox had selected the prospect in the 28th round of the MLB first-year player draft, pick No. 833 overall.
MLB.com lists Zammarelli as a third baseman and at 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. Zammarelli signed a letter of intent with North Carolina's Elon University last November.
