Mets sign sixth-round pick Tuschak

The Mets announced Thursday that they signed outfielder Joe Tuschak (Northern York High School, Pa.), their sixth-round pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.

Tuschak hit a grand slam in early June in the Pennsylvania Class AAA PIAA Championship game at Penn State’s Medlar Field to give Northern York a 6-3 win and the state title.

The Mets have signed 25 of their draft picks. Tuschak will be assigned to a minor league team within the next week.
