James Dansby Swanson is a baseball shortstop who plays in Major League Baseball for the Atlanta Braves. In the 2015 MLB Draft, he was the first player picked by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Swanson was born in Kennesaw, Georgia, to two people who played sports at Troy University. As a child, he cheered for the Braves.



At Marietta High School, he participated in two sports and excelled in basketball, earning the moniker “Three-point Swanson”.

Swanson was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 38th round of the 2012 MLB Draft out of high school, but he decided not to sign, instead choosing to play college baseball with the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Due to injury, he missed the majority of his freshman season, but as Vanderbilt’s starting second baseman, he enjoyed a spectacular sophomore campaign.

Swanson proposed in December 2021 to Mallory Pugh, a player for the Chicago Red Stars and the United States women’s national soccer team.

Jace Peterson, a former teammate of Swanson, and Pugh’s brother-in-law introduced the couple, and they started dating in 2017.

Justin and Leonidas Dansby played in Minor League Baseball but never made it to the majors, making Swanson the first MLB player with “Dansby” in any part of his name.

James Dansby is Swanson’s mother’s maiden name, and Swanson is his first name.

He is the youngest of three children, and both of his older siblings participated in intercollegiate athletics: Lindsey played softball at Georgia College, while Chase played baseball for the Mercer Bears.
