Baseball Runs Deep in Zeile Family

Shane Zeile turned to catching while playing for UCLA, and it has paid off by his being drafted by the Detroit Tigers in the fifth round of the 2014 MLB Draft.

Shane is the nephew of Todd Zeile, who played for 16 seasons in the major leagues and compiled a career .265 batting average and 253 home runs. Shane got advice from his uncle as his baseball career progressed.
