As a result of his late signing, Everett Williams
only got a handful of games in with the Arizona Rookie League Padres and the Eugene Emeralds.
Williams went 7-for-18 in Arizona with three extra-base hits. He then went 5-for-25 with Eugene - hitting his first professional homer.
He also got a bigger audition in the Padres fall Instructional League, hitting .294 in 51 at-bats.
"I saw an athletic high school kid with very quick hands," former Eugene hitting coach Eric Peyton said.
The San Diego Padres didn't sign outfielder Everett Williams until deadline day for signing draft picks. They feel they got a first-round talent later than most thought he would be available.
