A former Vista Ridge pitcher earned his shot with the Rangers thru a tryout camp.
Mike Zouzalik returned to the Dell Diamond to be formally introduced after being signed by Nolan Ryan and the Rangers to a Minor League contract out of the open tryout August. 22.
Zouzalik will report to Surprise Arizona with the rest of the Ranger's prospects in September.
"I just got everything set up to go to Australia and play over there and I been talking to a guy had a pretty good relationship I felt bad backing out at the last minute," said Zouzalik.
"Its not too often that you sign kids out of tryout camps but we have those camps in hopes of having something like this happen and so we're excited about it," said Ryan.
