Beyond the Game: Milwaukee Brewers’ Scooter Gennett

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Scooter Gennett was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 16th round of the 2009 first-year player draft. However, after having an All-Star season at Class AA Huntsville last year, Gennett is rated as the fifth best prospect in the organization. Not bad for a 5'10" 157 pound Floridian who was always told he was too small to make the Big Leagues.

Gennett credits his upbringing for his success. His father, a former Big League scout, was the disciplinarian. Mother -- the go-to parent when times got tough.

Gennett's dad says he is proud of his son's rise to the cusp of becoming a Major Leaguer.
