Golden Valley Grad Scott Barlow Signs With Dodgers

khts_sportsIt looks like Golden Valley High grad Scott Barlow would rather be a Dodger than a Bulldog.

The pitcher and sixth-round pick by the Dodgers in the Major League Baseball draft decided to go pro rather than test the collegiate waters with Fresno State.

Barlow was in the stadium last night to watch the Dodgers lose to the Phillies. He is expected to start his pro career in the Arizona Rookie League.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
