American pitcher Paul Stanton Sewald plays professional baseball. He participates in Major League Baseball for the Seattle Mariners. At Bishop Gorman High School in Summerlin, Nevada, he played baseball for his high school team.
He didn’t get picked up by any team after he graduated from high school, so he enrolled at the University of San Diego and played baseball for the San Diego Toreros there.

He was given a promotion to the Class AA Eastern League’s Binghamton Mets during the 2014 season. When the season was over, he competed in the Arizona Fall League. He split the 2015 season between playing for Binghamton and the American baseball team at the Pan American Games.
The Mets assigned him to the Class AAA Pacific Coast League’s Las Vegas 51s for the 2016 season. On April 8, 2017, Paul made his MLB debut for the Mets. He was not extended a contract by the Mets following the 2020 campaign, and in January 2021, he signed a minor league contract with the Seattle Mariners.
