Chris Oliver Inks Professional Contract with Philadelphia Phillies Former University of Arkansas right-handed pitcher Chris Oliver signed a professional contract with the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday morning. Oliver was selected in the fourth round by the Phillies and was one of six Razorbacks taken in the 2014 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. To read the complete story click here.
What Oliver is Saying "I think the thing I’m going to miss the most about Arkansas is the fans. Having a packed house every weekend and the atmosphere Baum Stadium has under the lights is incredible. The camaraderie that comes from being a Razorback and all the people you meet and the teammates you have is something I will never forget. A lot of great guys come through that program and I was lucky to a part of it."
