High schooler taken by O's in 15th round

The Orioles made Mater Dei High School (IN) shortstop Tyler Walsh their 15th-round selection Saturday.

He batted leadoff and hit .325 with 30 runs and 22 RBIs last year in his junior season as Mater Dei took second place in the Class 2A state tournament. He also swiped 24 bases in 25 attempts that season.

Walsh also played basketball at Mater Dei, where the 6-foot-5 forward was selected as a Second Team All-Conference player and as a Top-100 underclassman in Indiana.

The middle infielder is committed to Division I Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. Perhaps coincidentally, Belmont is right down the street from Vanderbilt, where the Orioles' 14th-round pick, Mike Yastrzemski, played baseball.
