Chesapeake, Va. - It's special to be drafted to the big leagues out of college, but it's rare to be picked up out of high school. Deep Creek senior Jimmy Barnes was drafted to the LA Angels with the 345th pick in the 2015 MLB Draft and is continuing the legacy of great baseball players coming out of Hampton Roads.

We spoke with him before he left for Arizona, where he'll be spending the summer training and working out with the Angels.
