George County alum Justin Steele impresses in MLB debut

They say there’s a first time for everything and George County alum Justin Steele can now say that about his Major League Baseball career.

The former Rebel made his Chicago Cubs debut against the Milwaukee Brewers, throwing a scoreless inning and a third with two strikeouts while giving up just one hit and walk.

Steele was a fifth-round selection of the Cubs back in 2014 and got the chance to pitch pretty close to home in 2019 as a visiting Tennessee Smokies player against the Biloxi Shuckers.

At the time, he was the eighth-ranked prospect of the Cubs.
