Nettleson's PJ Hilson drafted by the Giants in the 6th round.

On day two of the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, the San Francisco Giants selected Nettleton's PJ Hilson in the sixth round (166th overall pick).

Hilson has signed with the University of Alabama to play college baseball, and now has a big decision to make. 

"It's like right now, I'm more than likely going pro because I got a good signing bonus and I mean it's a once in a lifetime opportunity because who knows in three years I may not get the same opportunity I get this year," Hilson said.

Hilson is a speedy outfielder, who can hit for power and average. He hit .402 his senior year, 20 extra-base hits including 6 homeruns while driving in 34 runs.
