Monroe, La. – Redshirt junior pitcher Cole Gray signed a free agent contract with the Oakland Athletics Monday afternoon.
The 6 foot 3 inch right hander recently completed his second season at ULM, posting a 1-1 record over 15 appearances in 2019, giving up 24 runs, 19 earned, on 28 hits with 21 strikeouts to 13 walks.
"It's something I've dreamed about and joked around about with my friends and teammates," Gray said. "It's coming true. It still does not feel real."
The native of Meridian, Miss., spent two years at ULM learning from head coach Michael Federico.
