Geography Student Bingham Drafted by San Diego Padres

Paul Bingham, a senior Geography major with an emphasis in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), was recently drafted in the twentieth round of the 2010 Major League baseball draft by the San Diego Padres.

Bingham, a four-year starting shortstop for IUP, earned first team Division II All America as well as first team Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) honors for the 2010 season.

Paul also has been a successful student in the department’s Geography program, working to develop his skills in the geospatial sciences—he was in the process of completing an IUP internship with Energy Corporation of America (ECA) in Buckhannon, West Virginia, when he was notified that he has been drafted by the Padres.
