KCHS ‘Hall’ for rising pro Ferguson

With his KCHS Baseball “Hall of Honor” award in hand, Minor League Baseball star Drew Ferguson is joined by Caleb Moore, Irish varsity baseball head coach.
Drew Ferguson, former Knoxville Catholic record-setting second baseman (Class of 2011), has followed another record-breaking career at Belmont University with a quick rise through the World Series champion Houston Astros’ Minor League farm system.

With help from Irish varsity baseball head coach Caleb Moore, Ferguson officially was inducted into The KCHS Baseball “Hall of Honor.”

That honor, part of a brief ceremony, came during halftime of the Catholic boys varsity home game versus Hardin Valley Academy Friday night, Jan. 26.

Drafted in the 19th round by Houston in 2015, Ferguson was named to the Double-A Texas League All-Star team last season before a promotion: he was sent to Houston’s Triple-A affiliate, in Fresno, California, where he finished the 2017 season.

Still holding the Irish all-time record for runs scored in a career while top 10 in school history in four other categories, Ferguson continued to shine at Belmont.

In 2015, he was named a National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-American and a First-Team All Ohio Valley Conference selection.

Ferguson holds the single season Belmont record for runs scored, hits and doubles while ranking in the top 15 all-time in six other program categories.

In 2014, he was named to the All-South region team. In 2013, Ferguson was named Second-Team All-OVC.
