Ty Simonelli has committed to play baseball for South Arkansas Community College. The former LSWA and LBCA first team All-Stater heads to the El Dorado based school after spending one season at Bossier Parish Community College. 

Instrumental in leading Quitman High School to the Class B state semifinals in 2022, Simonelli led the team with a .403 batting average, seven triples and 37 runs scored. The son of April and Michael Simonelli of Quitman also excelled as ace of the QHS pitching staff, especially in postseason play where he pitched Quitman to a second round victory and earned the save in the quarterfinals. 

This summer Simonelli has been playing for the Koala’s in the Shreveport based North Louisiana Collegiate League where his versatility has earned him a spot in the NLCL All-Star game that was played on Friday.
