Darton pitcher Nick Green is turning down a chance to play professional baseball for now.
The former Tift County star was an 11th round draft pick of the Houston Astros last week.
Green believes he could go even higher in next year's draft and will return for his sophomore season for Glenn Eames' Cavaliers.
This season, Nick Green's record was 3-6 but his earned run average was3.75 and he struck out 69 batters in 69 innings.
