Culver Pitcher Tyler Marks Scores in Baseball Draft


Tyler Marks was a star pitcher at Culver City High, then he began to attract professional baseball scouts at Concordia College in Irvine, then came his biggest day.

Marks, who registered 20 saves for Concordia last season as a junior, was drafted last week in the sixth round of baseball’s annual first year player draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Of the thousands of high school and college players hoping to launch a professional career, Marks was the 166th player to be selected.

The Diamondbacks are considering converting Marks to a starting pitcher.

In the recently-completed season Marks made 38 relief appearances and compiled a 5-1 record and a 1.24 ERA.

The Observer will carry Fred Altieri’s interview with Marks in next week’s paper.
