John Schuerholz (pronounced /ˈʃɜrhɒlts/; born October 1, 1940) is the President of the Atlanta Braves of the National League. Before joining Atlanta, he spent twenty-two years with the Kansas City Royals organization, including nine as the club's GM. Among the teams he has built are the 1985 Royals and 1995 Braves, both world champions. His teams have also won their division 15 times. He is considered the king of scouting credited with an amazing farm system. In 2006, Schuerholz published a book, Built To Win, which chronicled his tenure with the Braves and shed light on some of his most important moves as a GM. After the release of the book, Schuerholz and longtime Braves pitcher Tom Glavine feuded over what Glavine called "secrets" that were released in the book.

Schuerholz was born in Baltimore, Maryland. He is a graduate of the Baltimore City College and Towson University. His generousity to the university has been rewarded with his name on the baseball facility.

Schuerholz's son, Jonathan, was an Atlanta farmhand in the minor leagues from 2002–2007. Jonathan retired from baseball in August 2007 to go back to Auburn University to complete his business degree. The younger Schuerholz finished his six year career in the minor leagues with a .223 batting average.
