St. Louis Signs Top Draft Pick

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Saint Louis Cardinals agree to contract terms Saturday with infielder Pete Kozma of Owasso, Oklahoma, the 18th overall pick in June's baseball draft.

The 18-year-old Kozma hit .522 with 11 homers and 55 RBIs as a high school senior at Owasso, leading the Rams to the Class 6A title.

Kozma will undergo a physical when he reports Tuesday to the Cardinals' minor-league complex in Jupiter, Florida.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Once Kozma signs the deal, he's expected to report for the rookie league short season in Johnson City, Tennessee.
