Late Tuesday night, former West Virginia first baseman Ryan McBroom made his major league debut with the Kansas City Royals. It didn’t take McBroom long to get his feet wet in the big show.

In two seasons with the Mountaineers, the right handed slugging first baseman hit 20 home runs 97 RBI and hit for a .304 batting average. He was selected by the Kansas City Royals in the 36th round of the 2013 MLB Draft, but decided to return to West Virginia for his senior season and was drafted by the Blue Jays in the 15th round a year later. Just a short two days ago, the Royals acquired McBroom in a trade with the New York Yankees for cash considerations. During his time with AAA Wilkes-Barre Scranton, he hit at a .315 clip to go along with 26 home runs and 66 RBI.
