Shiner senior pitcher/outfielder Ty Boedeker has spent a lot of his high-school summers playing ball.

All this practice and reps paid off as he got noticed by the Galveston College baseball program.

“I got noticed by Galveston College during my summer league teams. They came to one of our games and I talked to the coach.

He was friendly and gave me an offer,” Boedeker said.

Boedeker signed a letter of intent to play for the NJCAA Division 1 Whitecaps on Tuesday.

“I am really excited because they are a good baseball team,” he said. “I cannot wait to work with them.”

“I think anytime you get to move on to the next level, it’s a good deal for kids to have that opportunity,” Shiner baseball coach and Ty’s father Daniel Boedeker said. “Ty is going to a good place where he can develop as a player and hopefully move on from there.”

Ty Boedeker played a lot on the mound during his time as a Shiner Comanche. He is slated to be placed in the outfield when he joins up with the Galveston College Whitecaps baseball team. Boedeker signed his letter of intent earlier this week.

Coastal Bend College and University of Houston-Victoria also offered Ty Boedeker.

He took a visit down to Galveston, and found the players friendly and the facilities nice.

Ty Boedeker hopes to get lots of playing time his first year with the program.

“I want to make the starting lineup and help the team win as much as I can,” he said. “I will probably play somewhere in the outfield most likely. I probably will try out for pitcher but more than likely, I will be in the outfield.”

“I think he will fit in good there,” Daniel Boedeker said. “Ty works hard, and that is one of things the Whitecaps noticed about him and his personality. The people he is going to be around are all there for the same reason.

Ty Boedeker said giving your all in every practice session is the key to becoming a great high-school player who can have a shot at the college level and perhaps farther.

“You have to work for it every day at practice and in games,” he said. “Practice is more important because that is where you get better. Just come every day and work.”

His career path will resemble that of his father.

“I plan on getting my degree in education to become a teacher and coach, like my dad,” Ty Boedeker said.

After completing his two years at Galveston College, Ty Boedeker plans to transfer to Texas State University in San Marcos.

Ty Boedeker said he would miss the family atmosphere of Shiner.

“I will miss the Shiner community and having my dad as my coach; having all of my friends on the same team as me. There is nothing like it,” he said.

The Comanches were district champions and area-round finalists.
