Hudgens was selected by the New York Mets in the first round of the 1975 MLB Draft, and later by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 18th round of the 1977 MLB Draft. He did not sign either time, and instead chose to attend Arizona State University. He appeared in two College World Series during his four years with the Sun Devils. In his college career, he posted a .313 batting average with 16 home runs and 135 runs batted in. After graduating, Hudgens played for the Oakland Athletics and Cleveland Indians in their minor league systems in a span of six seasons from 1979–1984, while appearing in six games with the Athletics in 1983.

Coaching career

After retiring from playing baseball, Hudgens managed four years in Oakland's minor league system from 1985-1988 for the Medford A's and Pocatello A's. He was hired by Oakland A's General Manager Billy Beane. He also managed winter ball for the Leones del Caracas club of the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League, posting a record of 35-28 during the winter of 2009. He then returned to manage the Leones in 2014, but was dismissed in the middle of the season.
