Andrew Pullin, from Centralia, Washington, is a natural right-handed thrower who also has the ability to pitch left-handed. In high school, he made a name for himself as a switch pitcher, just like Drew Vettleson who was drafted by the Rays. At Centralia High School, Pullin was a starting outfielder and pitcher. In the summer, he played baseball for the NW Timberjacks 18U team. 

Pullin was recruited to play baseball for the University of Oregon (Ducks), but in 2012 he was drafted in the fifth round by the Philadelphia Phillies. Following his dream to play pro baseball, Andrew Pullin signed with the Phillies where he plays outfield for the Gulf Coast League Phillies. He hit .321 with 10 doubles and 2 homers in 2012.

Pullin was listed by Oregon as an outfielder, his primary position in high school, but the Phillies want to convert him to second base. He has also pitched, primarily as a right-hander but in brief appearances as a left-hander. 
“It’s been my dream to play professional baseball,” Pullin told a reporter of his decision to sign. “I got the opportunity, and I took it.”
