Etiwanda’s Tyler Freeman anxiously awaiting MLB draft

Brothers Tyler Freeman, foreground, and Cody Freeman have played on the same baseball team for most of their lives.

It has already been quite a memorable season for Etiwanda senior shortstop Tyler Freeman.

He spent it playing alongside sophomore brother Cody who started at second base and that was rewarding in itself.

The two helped the Eagles to a 27-3 record and their first ever CIF championship, with that title coming in a very deep and competitive Southern Section Division 2.

In 30 games he hit .526 with 35 runs scored, 36 RBI, 8 doubles, 4 triples and 4 home runs. He already has been named Baseline League most valuable player and more post-season accolades are sure to come.

He was a four-year starter for the Eagles.

The Major League Baseball draft starts on Monday and Freeman’s name is likely to be called so he’ll have that very difficult decision of pursuing professional baseball or going on to Texas Christian, the college with which he has already signed.

You never know exactly where you have been pegged but Freeman said he is hearing he should be taken somewhere between the third and fifth rounds.

He said he has heard from several teams and many organizations have had representatives who have seen him play more than once – the Red Sox, Dodgers, Indians and Mariners among them.

He has thought about that decision and says he has a figure in mind of what it would take for him to pass up college baseball.

“It would really have to be life-changing money,” said Freeman, admittedly a die-hard Dodger fan.

Freeman said come Monday he won’t be anchored to his computer or phone waiting to hear if his name is called.

“I’m just going to do what I normally do. I’ll probably workout in the morning, If it happens, it happens. It definitely is a very exciting time and I can;t wait to see what happens.”
