Former Hays Rebel baseball star Seth Stephenson ('19) (5'9, 170) is headed to the Detroit Tigers after being selected in the 7th round (number 207 overall) of the annual Major League Baseball Draft on Monday (July 18).

Stephenson was an all district star for the Hays (then called Rebels) baseball team, before playing two seasons at Temple College.  After honing his skills there, Seth transferred to Tennessee, and was an integral part of the Volunteers success during the 2022 season.  He batted north of .330 the entire season, with 28 extra base hits and a team-leading 25 steals.  Vols teammate Drew Gilbert went in the first round to the Houston Astros.

Big congrats to Seth and his family, who still reside in Buda, TX.
