Edmonds-Woodway’s Ian Gac is still undecided on whether he plans to pursue a career in professional baseball or accept a full ride scholarship from the University of Northern Iowa.
Gac, a first baseman, was drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 26th round of last week’s Major League Baseball amateur draft.
“I haven’t made a decision yet,” Gac said on whether he will turn pro. “I’m just not sure yet … I’m pretty torn right now.”
Gac and a representative from the Texas Rangers visited last week.
“I’m not really leaning one way,” said Gac, who admitted that one minute he wants to go pro and the next he wants to go to college.
Gac wasn’t the only local ballplayer to garner attention by the major leagues.
Edmonds Community College, the two-time NWAACC champions, had four pitchers drafted.
The four are Ty Taubenheim (19th round, Milwaukee Brewers), Owen Williams (26th round, Pittsburgh Pirates), Cody McAllister (34th round, San Francisco Giants) and Anthony Snow (42nd round, Pittsburgh Pirates).
Frazier Dizard, a 2000 graduate of Meadowdale, was selected by the Chicago White Sox in the 10th round. Dizard currently is at the University of Southern California.
