Andover High School's Ryan Hanigan Signs With Phils

Andover's Ryan Hanigan
Former Red Sox catcher and Andover (MA) High School graduate Ryan Hanigan has signed a minor-league deal with the Philadelphia Phillies. Part of the contract invites Hanigan to the major-league Spring Training camp of The Fightins. If he makes the MLB roster, he will receive $1.25 million. The 36-year-old Andover Golden Warrior suffered through injuries in 2016—leading to a sub-par year. In his two seasons with the Red Sox, Hanigan hit .219 with 3 HRs and 30 RBIs over a total of 89 games. We wish Ryan the best of luck in the City Of Brotherly Love.
