(Marion) – Marion High School senior Tyler Seboldt finalized his commitment to play college baseball at Eastern Oklahoma State during a signing event and reception Monday afternoon in the MHS gymnasium foyer.

Eastern Oklahoma State is a two-year community college in Wilburton, Oklahoma, and competes in the National Junior College Athletic Association.

Seboldt was attracted to Eastern Oklahoma State’s athletic and academic environment during the recruiting process, and views the program as the ideal segue between high school and a four-year college or university.

“The feel of the school was just really homely, I guess you could say, the way the coaches made it feel,” Seboldt said. “Whenever I went down to visit, they made me feel welcome, like I was meant to be there in the first place. They have a good sports psychology program. They’re made to get be to a bigger college, such as Arkansas or Kentucky, somewhere like that. They have a really good academic program too – these guys are going to help me get ready for a bigger school.”

Seboldt has been Marion’s starting second baseman and an All-District performer each of the past two seasons. He was named the District 27-3A Defensive MVP for his work in the infield last spring.

Marion head baseball coach Tim Tesch sees all the necessary attributes in Seboldt for him to succeed as a collegiate student-athlete.

“Tyler, ever since he’s been here when he was a freshman, didn’t always have the size, but his work ethic was beyond anybody else’s,” Tesch noted. “He hit the weight room hard. Anytime baseball wasn’t in season, it was in season for him. Hard work paid off, and a great kid in the classroom, and he’s going to go do good things at Eastern Oklahoma State.”

Seboldt still has his senior season at Marion ahead of him before he competes in the college ranks. The Bulldogs hit the practice field for the first time this Friday, and open the 2018 season in their home tournament on February 22.
