2021 MLB Draft: Braylon Bishop, 403rd Overall, Pittsburgh Pirates

July 13, 2021

Braylon Bishop went in the 14th round with the 403rd overall pick by the Pittsburgh Pirates, who wanted to try use some of their draft budget to try to lure the talented Future Stars Series alum out of his college commitment.

Bishop first shined at FSS events as a member of Sticks Baseball, earning significant attention at both the 2019 Grad Class Tournament and 2020 Grad Class Tournament.

But, it was as a member of the National Team at International Week in 2019 where he really popped; he reached seven times over the course of the event despite being one of the younger players there, including a run-scoring double and single along the way.

“Firmly, Braylon is a guy who has to be as good as he wants to be,” said Jeremy Booth, CEO and president of the Future Stars Series. “He’s a very famous player, and we were one of the first to help make him famous, but he’s going to go to Arkansas and get to work…with him, it’s the hit tool. I think the comparison is Jacque Jones, and I’ve said that from day one, and I’m sticking with that now.”
