The official contract signing ceremony took place on September 22. Derek wore a Portland Timbers uniform with his name and 100 number. After the conclusion of the contract, the players made a general team photo with the boy.
Derek's mom Olympia Nalle Perdomo said that he was very much looking forward to meeting with the team and discussing with friends how he would catch the balls during the game. The boy's father was very excited when he signed the contract, and watched it with tears in his eyes.
