Missouri Southern senior left hander and former Sequoyah pitcher Zach Parish has announced he will sign an undrafted free agent deal with the Texas Rangers.
The consensus Division II National Player of the Year will fly to Texas on Tuesday to officially sign his deal and find out where he will be sent to start his professional journey.
"I have said when one door closes, another one opens," Parish said. "I want to thank the good Lord above for giving this old man one last hoorah. I'm excited to be where I'm at and excited to see where I go."
Parish was the MIAA Pitcher of the Year, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Region and National Pitcher of the Year, the American Baseball Coaches Association Regional and National Pitcher of the Year, as well as the D2CCA Regional and National Pitcher of the Year. He was a first-team All-MIAA, All-Region and All-American selection by each organization.
