Pitcher Frank Seminara was selected by the New York Yankees in the 12th Round of the 1988 amateur draft. In 1990, while playing for the Prince William Cannons, he led the Carolina League with 16 wins and a 1.90 ERA and was named the league's Pitcher of the Year .
He played three seasons in the majors, the first two with the San Diego Padres in 1992 and 1993, and the final one with the New York Mets in 1994. The Padres had drafted him from the Yankees in the 1990 Rule V Draft, and he was traded to Mets on December 10, 1993 in a six-player deal in which he and Marc Kroon were the most recognizable names. In his best season, he went 9-4, 3.68 in 19 games (18 starts) as a rookie with the Padres. His ERA then went up by a full run (or close to that) for each of the next two seasons.
Frank is one of a small number of major league players to come out of Columbia University.
