In the 2019 MLB Draft, the Dodgers selected Chet Allison with their 24th round pick. Allison played one season at Fresno City College and had a commitment to play for the Arkansas Razorbacks.

Out of Clovis High School in Clovis, California Chet wasn’t a big name prospect prior to his senior year. He decided to stay close to home and play at Fresno City College, less than 25 minutes from his home town of Clovis.

His first and only year at Fresno City College was something to really appreciate. Top Division 1 college programs jumped at the opportunity to offer Chet to play at their school. Arkansas and head coach Dave Van Horn gave Allison an opportunity he just couldn’t resist, at least for now. The JUCO standout signed with the Razorbacks in late April.

Chet Allison signed for $222.5K Friday morning, which was nearly $100k above his slot pick value. The Dodgers really lucked out with this pick, considering Allison could have been a top 3 or 4 round pick if he plays a year or two at Arkansas.

In his one year at Fresno City College, Chet Allison hit .446, with 11 HR’s, 50 RBI’s, and 17 SB in his 45 games played.

  1. Tyler, you need to update/correct your story! Chet Allison played TWO baseball seasons at Fresno City College, 2018 and 2019. You may confirm this by going to cccaasports.org or the FCC baseball website. As the Rams baseball public address announcer, I witnessed both seasons with pleasure. Chet is the best Rams right fielder I ever saw. In addition, his across the board offensive stats this past 2019 season led the Rams. My street cred? I was the FCC Sports Publicist for 25 years and have been PA mikeside since my retirement in 2009.
    I am totally delighted for Chet and have been a Dodgers fan since Johnny Podres shut out the New York Yankees 2-0 on Oct. 4, 1955 scattering eight hits to win Game 7 of the World Series. Gil Hodges drove in both runs. Go, Rams! Go, Blue! Thanks in advance for attending to the above.
    Sincerely, Woody Wilk, FCC Sports Publicist (Ret.)
