From playing in the state finals at Barron Collier to competing in the College World Series with Clemson and on to signing a professional contract, Schaus, at the age of 22, has a lifetime of memories from the sport he loves.
As much as baseball has meant to him, Schaus respects the game too much not to play wholeheartedly. So when he found his enthusiasm lacking as he prepared to begin play in an Arizona Rookie League, Schaus decided it was time to put away his bat and glove.
Less than a month after being drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 16th round of this year's Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, Schaus has retired from baseball. He made his decision official Saturday and flew home to Naples from Arizona the same day.
“I just didn't think I was having as much fun as I should be,” Schaus said. “I've decided to move on with life.”
