Arkansas State pitcher and Benton native Andy Ferguson was selected in the 18th round by the Kansas City Royals in the 2011 MLB draft.
â€śIâ€™m relieved,â€ť Ferguson said. â€śIt feels great. I donâ€™t even know how to put into words of how I feel right now.â€ť
Ferguson was the 546th overall pick in the draft but as of press time he was unsure of the details of his contract. The Kansas City organization was supposed to call him Tuesday night with the details, but Ferguson said through a text message that he had not heard from them yet.
