Shane McClanahan was born on April 28, 1997 in Baltimore, Maryland. Shane lived in Baltimore until age five and raised by his father, James “Clancy” McClanahan, and his mother, Lisa McClanahan, who is a homemaker. He says he was coached all his life through high school by his father, James, who used to be very hard on him, praising other kids, giving high-fives and making them feel good.
Shane has developed into a multi-sport athlete. He grew up watching soccer and goalkeeping and hitting and pitching with his right hand other than golf. But as he grew up, he settled on baseball as his preferred career choice.
Baseball runs in Shane’s family blood, which he inherited from his father, who played baseball in high school and was more of a “football guy”. His grandfather was a left pitcher in his school days and he had his uncle named Tim Hagemann who primarily played baseball at the bottom end of the minor league system for two seasons.
Shane received his education at Cape Coral High School in Cape Coral, Florida after his family moved to Southwest Florida from Baltimore, so he decided to play in college rather than sign or enlist with the Mets. Shane was born in Baltimore and lived there until he was 5 years old. He only attended high school in Florida after his family moved there.

During his high school career, Shane posted the record of 29-7 with a 1.02 Earned Run Average (ERA) along with 187 strikeouts and 123 innings. When he was drafted by the Major League Baseball Draft in 2015, he was selected in the 26th round by the New York Mets. But instead of signing with the Mets, he decided to attend the University of South Florida (USF) and play college baseball.
Shane didn’t start his career in the 2016 college freshman season, instead undergoing Tommy John surgery. Recovering from his injury, he started 2017 with 15 games and played all games as a redshirt freshman. He made the all-scoring record of 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA and 104 strikeouts and 76 innings. In 2018, Shane played as a redshirt sophomore and set the second record of 5–6 with a 3.42 ERA in 14 starts.

Shane was promoted to Charlotte Stone Crabs in June of that year where he posted the record of 4-4 in 11 appearances with 10 starts, 74 strikeouts, 53 innings and a 3.40 ERA.
Shane should focus on his career. This is his first year in MLB and he has many career records yet to set while playing baseball and being involved with MLB.
