UMary’s Shoen earns baseball honor, breaks marks | News, Sports, Jobs – Fairmont Sentinel

IT’S GONE — University of Mary first baseman Derek Shoen (left) watches the flight of one of his record-setting 14 home runs during collegiate baseball action earlier this season.

Shoen grew taller and became better at his sport of choice, graduating from Truman High School before being good enough to play baseball at the next level at Iowa Western Community College. The now 22-year-old put up gaudy numbers while at the junior college level, earning him a scholarship to a four-year college — the University of Mary located in Bismarck, North Dakota, playing for head coach Tanner Spencer. This season, Shoen earned all-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) first-team diamond honors for a second straight year. “I wouldn’t change my college choice at all,” Shoen said. “I enjoy playing for coach Spencer and we have an up-and-coming program. We just get better and better.” When speaking of Shoen, Spencer said he is, “highly impactful, has some real-deal power; was able to put together consistently solid at-bats. I don’t think he got pitched around. I would say he got pitched respectfully.” Shoen, a first baseman, had a record-setting season for the Mauraders, hitting 14 home runs and driving in 51 runs. In 49 games this season, the junior was 55-for-167 for a .329 batting average, with 12 doubles, 48 runs scored, while finishing with a .472 on-base percentage, a .653 slugging percentage and a 1.125 OPS. Shoen led the team in homers, RBIs, batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage and OPS and was tied for the team lead in runs. Shoen also walked 35 times and was hit by pitch 12 more times. “Derek hit third (in the batting order) for most of the season,” Spencer said. “Derek grew a ton as a leader. Toward the end of the season, he really grew into the role.” In NSIC play, Shoen tied for the conference-high in home runs with 11, finished fifth in slugging percentage at .678 and OPS at 1.147 and placed sixth in RBIs with 33. He also took eighth in on-base percentage at .469 and was10th with 33 runs scored. Shoen set a Marauder single-game record against Augustana University on March 29 when he belted three home runs and drove in seven runs in an 8-7 loss. He hit a two-run homer to left field in the fourth inning, a two-run dinger to right field in the sixth inning and a three-run HR to center field in the seventh inning. On the mound, Shoen pitched eight games for the Marauders with one start and seven relief appearances, earning two saves. Previous UMary all-NSIC first-team selections are Shoen (2021), third baseman Calvin James (2021), outfielder Jesus Payan (2019) and outfielder/pitcher Michael Feldman (2008). “At one point in the season we were 2-11 in conference play, but put it all together to put ourselves in better position in the standings,” Shoen said. Shoen spends many hours on the bus on road trips in the spring, which helps fulfill academic duties. Shoen carries a dual major of sports leisure management and business administration. “Consistently preach academics,” Spencer said. “Guys have required study hall. The university provides our student-athletes with academic support through a full-time student-athlete academic advisor. “Derek is an exceptional student with a very bright future in baseball and beyond.” Shoen dreams of playing Major League Baseball. If that doesn’t work out or when he hangs up his spikes, Shoen wants to be a groundskeeper. “I took care of our high school fields, so when my playing days are over I would like to get into groundskeeping,” Shoen said. “It’s something I enjoy doing.” Shoen is heading home to Truman now that school and the baseball season are over for the year. Shoen plans on returning for his senior year at UMary, which starts this fall. This summer, Shoen will play baseball for the Mankato Moondogs on a temporary deal, lasting anywhere from 10 to 30 days.
