Shane has developed himself into a multi-sport athlete. He grew up playing soccer and goalie, and doing right-handed batting, and pitching, except golf. But when he was an adult, he took baseball as his career-preferable choice.

Baseball is in the blood of Shane’s family, which he inherited from his father who played baseball in his high school and was like “more football guy”. His grandfather was a lefty pitcher in his school days and he was having his uncle named Tim Hagemann, who played baseball for majorly two seasons at the low end of the minor league system. Shane earned his education from Cape Coral High School after his family moved to Southwest Florida from Baltimore and he, therefore, decided to play in college rather than signing or getting committed to the Mets. Shane was born in Baltimore and lived there until the age of 5. He went to high school in Florida only after his family shifted there.
