KEVIN THOMAS — ON BASEBALL: Red Sox have options with No. 7 pick in draft
By Kevin Thomas

The Boston Red Sox hold the No. 7 pick in this year's major league baseball draft, which begins Thursday. It is the best draft pick Boston has had in 20 years.

Ball was an outstanding pitcher and hitter in high school, but is considered by most scouts to have greater potential on the mound at the pro level. Ball was announced as a pitcher.
