Princeton right-handed pitcher Matt Bowman and catcher Sam Mulroy were selected in the 2012 Major League Baseball First-Year Draft. Bowman, the No. 410 pick overall, was drafted by the New York Mets in the 13th round and the Los Angeles Angles selected Mulroy in the 33rd round.

In 2012, Bowman split time between the mound and shortstop, earning All-Ivy League Honorable Mention accolades at both positions. On the rubber, he went 4-2 with a 4.66 ERA. In nine starts over 56 innings of work, he boasted a pair of shutout victories and three complete games, while tallying 58 strikeouts and giving up only 17 walks. At the plate, Bowman was Princeton's third-leading batter averaging .308. He had 41 hits, 26 runs, 15 RBI, a pair of doubles, a triple and a home run in 33 starts.

The No. 1,017 pick Mulroy (left) also showcased his versatility this year, playing behind the plate, in center field and at third base. A two-time All-Ivy First-Team selection, Mulroy led the Princeton offense with a .351 average, tallying 52 hits, 37 runs, 32 RBI, eight home runs, eight doubles and a triple. Mulroy, who is tied for second all-time in the Princeton record book with 25 home runs, also had a .990 fielding percentage.
