According to PrepBaseballReport.com, Ohio recently received a commitment for the class of 2014 in Ty Suntken, a shortstop and right-handed pitcher from Wauseon High School (OH).
The Ohio High School Baseball Coaches Association named Suntken First Team All-Ohio, after hitting .433 with four home runs and 25 RBIs his junior year, according to Defiance City Schools’ records of local area stats.
As a pitcher, the righty has a fastball, curve and changeup in his arsenal. His fastball hits the 87-88 mph range, while his curveball and changeup are near the mid-to-low 70s, according to PrepBaseballReport. Suntken went 5-0 in 41.1 innings last year, striking out 43 and posting a 1.02 ERA.
Suntken is a solid athlete with room to grow in his senior season. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound junior ran his 60-yard-time in 7.26 seconds.
Suntken’s commitment to play for the Bobcats is not official until National Signing Day on February 6, 2014. He joins Noah Jacik as the only other recruit from the class of 2014 to announce their decision to join the Ohio program.
