Dansby Swanson is the shortstop for the Atlanta Braves. He’s the former #1 overall pick in the 2015 MLB draft and a Georgia native.

Mike connects with Dansby via video call. At the time of filming, the Braves were in first place in the NL East and on a path to clinching a high seed in the playoffs. Now Dansby and the Braves are playing the Dodgers for a World Series berth. Did the magic of Stevenson Ranch rub off on the great city of Atlanta? Probably.


The two talk some of the parallels between baseball and life: how to get out of a slump, how to keep it real, and how to stay in the batter’s box no matter what. There’s talk about therapy; how freeing it can be and how it builds confidence in one’s own self. Dansby also shares how his childhood upbringing motivated him to give back more and help others in life. He loves spreading the love—and honestly, who doesn’t?
