Huntington High pitcher Patrick Arnold was selected by the Washington Nationals in the 15th round of baseball's amateur draft today.
Arnold was the 460th selection overall. He went 23-and-1 with a
one-point-three-one earned-run average in his high school career.
He struck out 260 batters in 181 innings.
Arnold also has a scholarship to attend North Carolina State.
The Los Angeles Angels are in pursuit of West Virginia quarterback Patrick White again.
Three years after he turned down a contract offer from the team
when it was known as the Anaheim Angels, White was drafted by the
Angels today in the 27th round of baseball's amateur draft.
White says he appreciates the Angels for thinking that highly of
him again, but he plans to concentrate on football for now.
The Angels took White in the fourth round in 2004 a few months
after he signed a letter of intent with the Mountaineers out of
high school in Alabama.
White was named Gator Bowl M-V-P in January after leading the
Mountaineers to a comeback win over Georgia Tech.
