It didn't take long into his career in the United Shore Professional Baseball League for former Ball State infielder Alex Maloney to receive a phone call from a Major League Organization.

During the middle of just his fourth game with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Beavers on Saturday, Maloney was pulled to begin his transition to Arizona, where he is headed to join Chicago's rookie team.

With the free-agent signing, Maloney became the 14th player in the organizations 13-month history and the first player this year to sign a professional contract.

Maloney went to Twitter later that evening to thank both Ball State, Birmingham-Bloomfield and the Chicago White Sox organizations.

His father and coach at Ball State Rich Maloney also took to Twitter with an image of the video board showing Alex Maloney's reaction when he received the call.

During his career at Ball State, Maloney had a .272 batting average with 17 home runs and 126 RBI.

The Arizona League White Sox are currently 1-1 this season with their next game tonight against the Arizona League Reds at 7 p.m.
