BB&N's Andrew Chin Spruns Toronto Blue Jays, Will Attend Boston College

Andrew Chin, a recent graduate of Buckingham Browne & Nichols in Newton and the fifth-round draft pick of the Toronto Blue Jays in this year's draft, has decided to turn down the Jays and will honor his commitment to attend and play for Boston College. Chin was offered a $275,000 signing bonus and full tuition at BC by the Jays, but declined.

"The money wasn't right," said Chin, who still has until midnight tonight to change his mind. "It wasn't a bad offer, but the amount I'd be giving up if I take the money would outweigh the benefits, so I figured why not just wait couple of years." (via ESPN Boston)

Chin, a left-handed pitcher, tossed a mere five innings last year for BB&N - his senior season - before option to undergo Tommy John surgery, which forced him out for the remainder of the 2011 campaign. Despite the surgery, the Blue Jays evidently didn't have any worries, as they took him with the No. 169 overall in this year's draft.
