Red Sox take Gwynn pupil Romanski in 14th round

Hitting is an art and few are better equipped to teach it than former MLB hitting extraordinaire Tony Gwynn.

The Red Sox selected one of Gwynn's pupils in the 14th round of the First-Year Player Draft on Saturday when they drafted catcher Jake Romanski out of San Diego State, where Gwynn coaches.

Romanski hit .303 for the Aztecs in his senior year and was named all-Mountain West.

He is the second catcher the Red Sox have drafted this year behind third-round selection Jon Denney.
