Trivia

  • His entrance music is Mo Money Mo Problems by The Notorious B.I.G.

Nicknamed "Son of Scribe," because his father is a long-time baseball writer for the Los Angeles Times.

  • He is a member of the Pepperdine Waves Hall of Fame.
  • Although he was a solid student while growing up California, and later at Pepperdine, David never considered following in his father's journalistic footsteps. "Playing seemed a lot more fun than writing," he says. "My dad writes at home, and one thing I've seen a lot of is his cussing up a storm, yelling at the laptop. I understand what the sportswriter goes through. I don't think anyone has to worry about me pulling an Albert Belle."
  • Newhan considers himself Jewish, but he says he has also accepted Jesus Christ.
