Johnny Leonard, a graduate of Connellsville high school has been drafted into Major League Baseball by the Arizona Diamondbacks.
I think I speak for all of the Nam when I say this is totally awesome!
He's also from Dawson. Also hailing from the Nam is the team's northeast scouting supervisor, who is from Connellsville.
See? We produce good, hardworking, talented people. They all make a break for it and leave, but still. We produce them.
Congratulations and best of luck, Johnny. You have the potential not just to kick ass at baseball, but to improve Fayette County's reputation. No pressure.
