Someone is going to have to convince me that George Barber is a worthwhile signing.



Xtremeline Baseball School Camp outfielder, George Barber became the newest member of the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, October 11th, 2012. Barber, a Miami Central graduate impressed the Orioles during their Instructional Camp in Sarasota, Florida. The swift center fielder caught the eye of the Los Angeles Angels back in 2010 while playing at Broward College and was drafted in the 43rd round. He hit .340 for the Angels during spring training but was released because of a crowded and talent deep outfield that included 2012 Rookie of the Year candidate, Mike Trout. Barber came to Xtremeline Baseball School Camp on the recommendation of Xtremeline Coach Joel Bradley and trained under the watchful eye of Orioles executive and Xtremeline Owner, Fred Ferreira. Barber has already been assigned to the Orioles’ Gulf Coast League team and continues to train at Xtremeline Baseball until the spring. Congratulations George!
