The Phillies have signed North Dakota high school star Ryan Bollinger, their 47th round draft pick in June. Bollinger will report to the Phillies' Gulf Coast League affiliate in Clearwater this week.

"It was a tough decision to choose between that and school, but it is my chance to do what I always wanted to do," Bollinger told the Minot Daily News. "My family and I came to a decision that that's what I want to do and that's what I need to do. I'm going to work hard to get where I've always wanted to be."

Bollinger was drafted as a first baseman, but also pitches and plays the outfield.
