Catawba Baseball Hopes to Draft 9-Year Old Caleb Stewart

00_CatawbaAthletics

SALISBURY, NC – It’s finally here!  The 2014 Catawba College Baseball draft is today at 5:30pm.  The Catawba Indians are looking to strengthen its roster with some big talent in this year’s draft.  In the inaugural year of the Catawba College Baseball Draft, Coach Jim Gantt has his eyes set on just one prospect, Caleb Stewart. 

Stewart is a 9-year old phenom coming from Advance, NC and likely destined to be a future starting shortstop.  Stewart has proven both his physical and mental toughness as he battles to overcome Cystic Fibrosis.  Cystic Fibrosis is a life-threatening and chronic lung disease found in children.  Caleb was diagnosed with CF at just 4 months old.  He remained healthy until March of 2013 he was taken to the hospital after complaining from pain in a different area of his body where he was put on breathing treatments and other medication. 

Catawba’s recruiting agency, TEAM IMPACT, searched all over to find the kind of talent that Stewart possesses. Coach Gantt spoke about Caleb saying, “He is a complete natural.  Caleb has a lot of potential as a shortstop and is a lock to be one of baseball’s rising stars.  We hope to surround him with good examples and mentors as he develops his game.”

Despite the Catawba baseball season having already begun, the Indians are looking for the motivation and inspiration that Stewart provides to bring a new level of success to the South Atlantic Conference perennial powerhouse.
