Kameron Misner is a 6’4″, 215 lb. lefty-hitting and throwing outfielder from Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Born on January 9th, 1998, the now 21-year-old college junior played his prep ball with Poplar Bluff HS, summer baseball with the Missouri Bulls and has attended the University of Missouri for the past three seasons.
Like the Miami Marlins first pick, Vanderbilt product J.J. Bleday, Misner was chosen in the 2016 draft. The Kansas City Royals chose him in the 33rd round. As a freshman in 2017, Misner hit .282/.360/.446 with seven homers and 34 RBI. He also stole 17 bases in 23 attempts. Misner struck out 55 times in 58 games that season, while drawing only 23 free passes.
In 2018, Misner learned a little patience at the plate, striking out 26 times with 32 walks in 34 games. He hit .360/.497/.576 with four homers, 25 RBI, and 13 stolen bases in 19 tries. Here’s Misner this season, courtesy of D1 Baseball’s https://youtu.be/MKdu1X7RTew
This season, Misner led the Tigers to a 34-22 record overall, but the team was eliminated from the Southeast Conference tournament in Game 2, by Ole Miss. For his part, Misner slashed .286/.440/.481 in 57 games played. He stole 20 bases while getting caught only once, drawing 54 walks and whiffing 58 times. He hit 10 home runs with 32 RBI.
Kameron is the 3rd Missouri Bull to be drafted and by far the highest draft pick for the organization which started back in 2008.
"He came to us as an 8th grader entering high school and always played up a grade. He really came into his own between his sophomore and junior high school season, said Campbell, Director of the program. He was the player every college coach talked about that summer. Then we played a showcase at the University of Missouri, he played extremely well and the rest is history.
He's a great kid from a great family and we wish him the best. We are proud that we played some small role."

“What’s Expected from a Bull”
1. BE ON TIME. If you are going to be late, let us know.
2. Wear your uniform and hat properly and with respect.
3. SPRINT on and off the field every inning. Hustle wins.
4. SPRINT from batter’s box to first base every time.
5. Pick up signs—in batter’s box, on bases and in the field.
6. ALWAYS know the number of outs.
7. Pitchers cover first base on ALL balls to the right side.
8. Back up bases on EVERY play, there’s always somewhere to be.
9. Pick up 3rd base coach EVERY time.
10. Hit cut-off men, EVERY time.
11. Catch fly balls with TWO hands whenever possible.
12. Make an attempt to block ALL balls in the dirt, regardless if there are runners.
13. Dugouts are for players and coaches only—no talking with parents or friends.
14. EVERY PLAYER will participate in chasing foul balls.
15. Throwing helmets, bats or anything else during a game is unacceptable.
16. BEHAVE like a BULL--support and respect your teammates, coaches as well as your opponents, umpires and fans--(sanction is immediate removal from the game).
