Another Kessinger Destined For Shortstop

His last name is certainly familiar to major league baseball circles, and he will also be following a family tradition at Ole Miss, where his father, grandfather and uncle also played college baseball.

Grae Kessinger verbally committed to Ole Miss after his sophomore season in high school. His grandfather Don was an All-American shortstop at Ole Miss and went on to a 16-year career in the big leagues, including six All-Star selections. His father Kevin also played for Ole Miss, followed by a brief minor league career in the Cubs organization. His uncle Keith was also a shortstop who played alongside Kevin at Ole Miss and wound up reaching the big leagues for the Reds in 1993.
