From coming up clutch in key moments as a 14-year-old to lead Rose Capital East Little League (Tyler, Texas) to a runner-up finish at the 2010 Junior League Baseball World Series, to being named a 37th round draft pick by the Detroit Tigers in the 2014 MLB Draft, Mr. Mahomes’ early years were filled with impressive performances on the baseball field.
