Congratulations to 2010 graduate Tyler Marincov, one of Timber Creeks’ former baseball players who is having success with the Midland Rockhounds, a minor league baseball team based in Midland, Texas. The Rockhounds play in the Texas league and is a Double-A affiliate of the Oakland A’s major league club. The Rockhounds won the Texas league championship in 2014 and 2015.
In 2014, Tyler finished third among A’s farmhands in stolen bases (18) and doubles (34), and tied for fourth in home runs (18); also ended the year in the top 10 among A’s Minor Leaguers in RBIs (77), hits (123), runs (70) and walks (53). He was selected by the Oakland Athletics in the eighth round of the 2013 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of North Florida. He was also selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 48th round of the 2010 Draft out of Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Florida, but did not sign.
And more recently, on June 19th, 2016 – Marincov had a walk-off double in the 12th inning for a come-from-behind victory in the opener of a four-game series.
Keep it up Tyler! The Timber Creek community is proud of you!
