Tifton - Former Darton College pitcher Nick Green says one reason he went from an 11th to 35th round draft pick in the span of one year in the major league baseball draft is the perception that he would be a tough sign.
The Tifton righthander said Tuesday night though that he was ready to sign and Nick Green will sign with the Anaheim Angels after agreeing to a contract on Wednesday.
After signing that contract, Nick Green will leave for the Angels spring training complex in Mesa Arizona for a mini-camp and then will be assigned to the Angels rookie league team in Provo, Utah.
Green, who according to Darton coach Glenn Eames posted a 7-5 record for the Cavaliers in his sophomore season, was considering a scholarship offer from Valdosta State.
But Nick says that playing professional baseball has been his dream and he is ready to see if his talent will one day carry him to the major leagues.
