GREATNESS IS EARNED

Journey

At just 22, Giancarlo Stanton is one of baseball’s most promising young stars and he’s quickly becoming an elite force at the plate as a premier power bat. The second youngest player in history to suit up for the Miami Marlins®, Giancarlo smashed 34 home runs (fifth best in the league) and drove in 87 RBIs in just his second season in the majors.

A three-sport athlete in high school, Giancarlo received multiple scholarship offers from different schools in both football and baseball. He accepted a baseball scholarship from USC®, but his journey to the pros would be a quick one, and the call of the ballpark won out. Giancarlo chose to turn pro after being drafted in the second round (76th overall) by Miami (then Florida) in the 2007 amateur draft.

Known for his raw power, Giancarlo regularly launches tape-measure shots over 450 feet and puts on an incredible show of power at batting practice. He earned the nicknames “Moonshot” and “The Unnatural” from fellow teammates and players around the league. Surprisingly athletic for his size, Giancarlo ’s a solid fielder and has a powerful arm that can gun down would-be runs at the plate as well as keep runners from taking liberties on the bases.
