Carey Schueler (born c. 1974) is the daughter of former Chicago White Sox General Manager Ron Schueler. She was the first woman ever drafted by a Major League Baseball team when the White Sox picked the 18-year old left-handed pitcher in the 43rd round (1208th pick overall) of the 1993 MLB draft.[1]

Up until that time she had been a basketball star at Campolindo High School in Moraga, CA.[2] She attended and played basketball for DePaul University before transferring to St. Mary's College of California,[3] where she continued to play until an injury in 1996.[4]

In 2002, Schueler was rumored to be a contestant for Survivor: Thailand. Despite the rumors, she never appeared on the show.[5]
