James Baldwin III signs with Dodgers

June 23, 2010
By James Frye of Pinecrest High School

James Baldwin III has signed with the Dodgers, the baseball club's website reports.

A center fielder from Southern Pines and a Pinecrest High School graduate, Baldwin's signing was announced Sunday along with the signings of three other draft picks. The Los Angeles team drafted Baldwin with its fourth-round pick in the recent Major League Baseball Draft.

Below is the atricle from the Dodger website. Details of the contract were not disclosed.
BOSTON -- The Dodgers on Sunday announced the signings of three more picks from the First-Year Player Draft.

They are: third-rounder Leon Landry, a center fielder from LSU; fourth-rounder James Baldwin III, a center fielder from Pinecrest High School in North Carolina; and 27th-rounder Yimy Queip-Rodriguez, a right-handed pitcher from Peru State College.

Baldwin is the son of former Dodgers pitcher James Baldwin Jr.

First-round pick Zach Lee remains unsigned and committed to play baseball and football at LSU, although Dodgers officials remain optimistic they can make an offer substantial enough to lure him away. If they are unable to sign Lee, they would receive the 29th-overall pick in next year's Draft as compensation.
