Baldwin’s Kaupe selected in fourth round of MLB Draft

Kaupe played shortstop at Baldwin this season and had signed with Central Arizona.

He helped the Bears advance to the Division I state championship game before losing to Waiakea.

He’s the highest draft pick from Maui since Kurt Suzuki was taken in the second round (No. 67 overall) by the Oakland Athletics in 2004.
