Glen Burnie High School 1988 graduate Jeff Locklear, a first-team All-County infielder his senior year, was selected yesterday by the SanFrancisco Giants in the major-league baseball free-agent draft.
Locklear, a first baseman and left-handed pitcher for the Gophers, will attend a minicamp this weekend in Scottsdale, Ariz., before being assigned to one of the Giants' minor-league teams.
"I'm pretty excited right now," said Locklear, 21. "It's something that I've always wanted. I hadheard some news about it (getting drafted), and I was hoping it would happen."
