Max Ungar, a 17-year-old graduate of the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Maryland—an all Jewish high-school—has been drafted in the 36th round of the Major League Baseball (MLB) draft by the Washington Nationals organization.

But Ungar has opted to play college baseball instead—that is, unless the Nationals can give him some cash.

“I will be attending Denison University in the fall and playing for the Big Red in the spring,” Ungar told Jeremy Fine of The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles. “While it is really cool to have been drafted, my teachers and counselors as well as Baseball factory (a recruiting organization) have all taught me that my college education is more important for my future.”

“Unless the Nats offer me a lot of money, I do not plan on accepting,” he added. “After that, I will go to Denison and play baseball for them while Nationals scouts and possibly other scouts follow me. After my junior year of college, I can be drafted again by any team.”
