Prep baseball: ODA' Dietrich an All-America pick

Tyler Dietrich, a catcher last spring at Out-of-Door Academy, earned second-team honors on MaxPreps' 2013 Baseball Small Schools All-American Team.
Dietrich hit .481 with 20 RBIs and 14 steals while throwing 73 percent of runners trying to steal as the Thunder won their second district title.
Dietrich will not be returning to ODA after his father, Billy, stepped down as the school's baseball coach.
Tyler Dietrich originally committed to play at Houston, but has withdrawn that commitment.
