James Dansby Swanson (born February 11, 1994) is an American college baseball infielder for the Vanderbilt Commodores.
Dansby attended Marietta High School in Marietta, Georgia. He was drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 38th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball Draft, but did not sign and attended Vanderbilt University. As a freshman, he played in only 11 games due to a broken bone in his foot and a torn labrum in his shoulder. As a sophomore in 2014, he was named an All-SEC. After the Commodores beat the Virginia Cavaliers in the 2014 College World Series, he was named the College World Series Most Outstanding Player.
