Vestavia Hills' Lemons, Cullman's Heatherly sign MLB contracts
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —
A couple of central Alabama prep stars are officially "big leaguers".
Vestavia's Hills pitcher Caden Lemons and Cullman pitcher Jacob Heatherly have signed their Major League contracts.
The Milwaukee Brewers drafted Lemons in the second round of last week's MLB Amateur Draft.
Heatherly went in the third round to the Cincinnati Reds. He received a million dollar signing bonus from the team, which is 300 thousand dollars more than what his draft position was valued for.
