Stewart chooses Santa Clara

Senior lefty Henry Stewart commits to the West Coast Conference Broncos; all-around player will sign early in November.
The Santa Clara baseball staff saw and liked Henry Stewart.

And Stewart certainly liked Broncos baseball.

So the talented Mullen senior committed recently to Santa Clara for a set of circumstances that make it possible for the left-hander to excel for his future school in the West Coast Conference.

“I am pumped, super-excited,” Stewart said. “It’s a real good opportunity.”

The pitcher outfielder indicated Broncos officials said he could attempt to be both a position player and pitcher.

Stewart said he had been conversing with Broncos coaches for multiple months and it increased after a camp appearance in Orange County.

He’s coming off a high-end junior year in which he helped the Mustangs (14-4 in the shortened COVID-19 season) tie for the Centennial League Championship and advance to the second round of Class 5A Regionals.

Individually, Stewart, 6-feet-1, 170 pounds, batted. 407 with 24 hits and 18 runs batted in. He had seven doubles and a home run.

On the mound, he was 3-2 in six appearances, a 3.54 earned-run average and 32 strikeouts in 29.2 innings.

Academically, Stewart boasts a 4.0 grade-point average and intends to pursue sports journalism/communications.

He will sign with the Broncos during the early period in November.

Committing and signing well before the season, Stewart said, “was definitely a goal of mine to get it done early and it feels like a lot of stress has been lifted off my shoulders.”
