44th Round pick Blake Ford signs

Stephen Goff says that 44th Round pick Blake Ford has signed with the Astros.

"I was eyeing every pick the first two days of the Draft, but I wasn't able to do it today. I had committed to helping out at a Little League camp. When my phone started beeping with so many text messages from friends, family and teammates, I knew I had been drafted. I saw it was the Astros and I couldn't have been happier."

Goff also says that he just so happened to be in Houston for last night's Cardinals game, and signed at Minute Maid park.
