Minot High School and Minot Vistas alumni Ryan Bollinger signed a professional contract with the Chicago White Sox on October 7.
… In August of 2009, Bollinger signed a seven-year deal with the Phillies, but the lefthander was cut before making it to their minor league system. He recently wrapped up a short stint with an independent baseball team of the Frontier League, the Windy City Thunderbolts. After working as a hitter in the Phillies organization, the 6-foot-5 Bollinger went back to the mound with the Thunderbolts. Bollinger was one of the top pitchers in the state in his final few seasons playing for the Magicians and Vistas.
… Bollinger will be working on his conditioning, fine tuning his mechanics, and making sure his arm is strong enough before spring training. After spring training, the White Sox organization will decide where Bollinger will go.
