John Stewart III is a Third-Generation Baseball Family Member

John Stewart III got the thrill of a lifetime when he was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 40th round of the 2015 MLB Draft.  He follows his father and grandfather in pursuit of his baseball dream.

John Stewart Sr. had a brief career in the San Francisco Giants organization, but later served the Cincinnati Reds as a scout for eighteen years.  John Jr.  is currently a scout for the Atlanta Braves and believes his son has the make-up to be a major league catcher.

However, John III will forgo signing a professional contract right now, in order to attend college at Marshall University and gain experience at a higher level. He’s hoping the pro career will come later.
