Keaton Steele, formerly of Central HS in St Joesph, committed this week to the Tiger baseball team. Steele is a tall 1st baseman and closer with an excellent bat.
His JuCo team, Iowa Western, was rated No. 1 for most of the season and won the World Series last week. Steele was named the Tournament MVP. In the championship game, he hit a two run homer, had another RBI, scored the tying run in the 9th inning and pitched a scoreless 9th for the save.
He was drafted in the 29th round by the Tampa Bay Rays. Here is a write up from a Ray's site about Steele:
