In an surprising round, the Atlanta Braves selected Chase Smartt from Charles Henderson High School. Smartt, who is deaf, was selected in the 35th round of the Major League Baseball’s First-Year Player Draft on Wednesday. Smartt helped Charles Henderson win state championships in 2013 and 2014. Hitting at .523 with seven homerun, 50 RBIs, Smartt is among the AHSAA’s all-time career leaders in hits, doubles, batting average and RBIs!

TSG congrats Chase Smartt on his selection to the Atlanta Braves!
