GLENDALE — It was quite a Tuesday for Christian Bergman.
It was quite a Tuesday that concluded a very memorable and significant four-day span in the life of the St. Francis High graduate.
And finally on Tuesday afternoon, the waiting ended along with the self-described "roller-coaster ride" as Bergman was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 24th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
"It's really been a roller-coaster ride," said Bergman, who was the 470th selection in the draft, of the last four days. "It's been real exciting. I'm just really happy how it all turned out."
On Saturday, Bergman pitched UC Irvine to a victory over Kent State in the Los Angeles Regional, but a day later, the Anteaters lost to UCLA and were eliminated, their season and Bergman's college career coming to a conclusion.
