Phillies Sign Ninth Round Draft Pick, Catcher Logan Moore

Less than a week has gone by since the end of the MLB draft and the Phillies have already agreed to terms with their 9th round pick, catcher Logan Moore. Moore had played two years at Northeastern Junior college, but was obviously ready to go pro. Part of his contract stipulates that the Phillies will pay for the remainder of his education provided he starts within two years of his baseball career ending.

"Draft day was pretty exciting. I didn’t expect (to be drafted) so soon, and to see my name on the screen was great."
