Business Administration Major Gets Drafted By the New York Mets

Business Administration major, Steven Winnick, was selected in the 2010 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft. Winnick was drafted in the 31st  round to the New York Mets as a right-handed pitcher. Winnick was the pick number 931.

Moved from the bullpen to a starting role in 2010, Winnick responded by going 10-3 in 16 starts for PLNU.  The 6-2, 195 pound San Diegan registered a 2.92 ERA and 58 strikeouts, toeing the rubber for 101. 2 innings. He won two postseason contests; defeating Fresno Pacific in a NAIA Opening Round game and California Baptist in a World Series tilt.

A two-way player who transferred from the University of San Diego, Winnick also hit a team-best .373 (60-for-161), to go with 38 runs scored and 22 RBI. In 2009 he batted .311 with five home runs and 27 RBI. He started at three positions during his time at Point Loma: first base, outfield and DH. 

Winnick went 11-4 with eight saves during his two-season stint as a Sea Lion, helping the team make two World Series appearances.

Winnick is the 26th university player selected since the draft’s inception in 1965.

The Fermanian Business & Economic Institute and School of Business congratulate Steven on this amazing accomplishment!

  1. Sirs,

    We have been very impressed with the presentation given by the Fermanian Business & Economic Institute at the Venture Capital Forum in Del Mar, California.

    Point Loma Nazarene’s baseball program is phenomenal with a Christ centered teaching that has helped our son, Steven Winnick’s spiritual growth as well as with his skills as a pitcher; and in fielding challenges in the business world as a team player.

    We thank Carroll Land, Coach Joe Schaefer, and the entire staff at PNLU for a job well done at “America’s Most Scenic Baseball Field” with two World Series appearances in a row, netting a second and a tie for third place.

    Keep up the good work!

    John F. Winnick, Sr.
    Chairman, CEO
    Space Launch Enterprises, Inc.
