Kansas City, MO (June 8, 2013) – The Kansas City Royals completed the third and final day of the 2013 First-Year Rule 4 Player Draft today, selecting a total of 41 players over three days.

The Royals selected 21-year old Hunter Dozier, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound shortstop from Stephen F. Austin University, with the eighth overall pick on Thursday.

He majored in kinesiology at Stephen F. Austin.
