Charles Carter of Texas A&M - Corpus Christi was drafted Wednesday by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 27th round of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.

“Charles was a 2003 grad of PJC and played for me in 2002 and 2003,” Dragons baseball coach Deron Clark said Thursday. “He was another Bobby Walters Cup winner in 2003.”

Carter played outfield and first base for the Dragons. He attended L.D. Bell High School in Hurst, the same high school as PJC Hall of Famer Larry McWilliams.
