(WVU Athletics)

2019 has been good to West Virginia baseball, both inside the program and out — and that success has officially made it to the majors.

WVU alumnus Ryan McBroom officially received his call up to the Kansas City Royals on Tuesday after leading the AAA International League in OPS (.976) on the Yankees-affiliated Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders this year. He was traded to Kansas City on Saturday, and was called up on Tuesday.

McBroom is the 25th Mountaineer to make it to the majors, and the fifth this season to make a roster.

The first baseman was a standout at West Virginia, earning two All-Big 12 nominations while leading the team in home runs and batting average for three consecutive seasons. He was drafted in the 15th round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers.
