FPU:

Fresno Pacific infielder Andrew Douglas, having just completed a highly-decorated four-year career with the Sunbirds, was helping his parents redo the roof of their house on Tuesday. While ripping off shingles and contemplating what was next for the All-Academic Psychology grad, his phone rang.

On the other end? A scout from the Chicago White Sox telling Douglas to keep his phone on him for the next couple hours.

“I thought it would be a good idea to get off the roof at this point, just so nothing bad would happen because I might have a new employer,” said Douglas.

45 minutes later he received another call, this time telling him that he was now a member of the Chicago White Sox organization. Douglas agreed to a minor league contract with the team, and will be assigned to Chicago’s Rookie-Advanced affiliate, the Great Falls Voyagers, in Montana. …

Douglas, 6’0” 210lbs, wasn’t drafted and was signed as a free-agent.

Here are his stats:
