Art Stewart

Inducted 2008

Known throughout the game as one of baseball's consummate and quintessential scouts, Stewart's career is marked by both longevity and great success. He left the Yankees after 16 years to join the Royals during their inaugural 1969 season. With Kansas City, he signed more than 70 players who would make it to the Major Leagues, including Brian McRae, Mike Macfarlane, Tom Gordon, Kevin Seitzer, Bo Jackson, Kevin Appier, Mike Sweeney, Johnny Damon, Joe Randa and Carlos Beltran. During his tenure as Director of Scouting (1984-96), the Royals were named Major League Baseball Organization of the Year four times by various publications.
