Westfield High School sophomore Keaton Mahan has verbally committed to play baseball for the Ohio State University Buckeyes upon graduation. The teen started playing baseball at age 3 and is starting his third year with the Indiana Bulls Baseball program.
“This opportunity means everything to me, it’s been a dream of mine to play college baseball since I could swing a bat,” Keaton Mahan said. “To find the school that’s perfect for me and my family and to have my prayers answered is amazing.”
The 16-year-old has tremendous drive and big goals, according to Indiana Bulls Baseball Director of Operations and Mahan’s former head coach Scott French. “It’s good to see good people get rewarded for hard work,” French said. “He is a remarkable hitter and has incredible talent as a player. Ohio State is a wonderful place to play, and I think they can help him develop his skills and abilities even more.”
Keaton’s family is overjoyed with his decision and looks forward to watching him grow as an athlete. “Keaton has worked hard to get the recognition he’s received,” Keaton’s father Kevin Mahan said. “The Indiana Bulls work day and night to promote Indiana kids. The quality of the coaches and the personnel develop these young men and baseball players at the next level. We feel so blessed that God has given us the resources to enjoy high school and travel baseball.”
“It brings tears to my eyes, I’m just filled with joy that he is fulfilling his dream that he has been working very hard towards,” Keaton’s mother Tonia Mahan said. “The Indiana Bulls have the passion and the love of the game for every boy that is out on the field. I can’t thank them enough for all they have done for us.”
