Each offseason, minor league baseball (milb.com) releases organizational all-stars for each major league team. This “team” honors the players in each organization who have had the best seasons in the minor leagues, regardless of age or prospect status.
One Valley League alumnus has been listed for his major league team:
- Ryan McBroom (Haymarket 2011-12) was listed as the New York Yankee’s utility player. Splitting his time between Double-A Trenton (25 games) and Triple-A Scranton (96 games), Ryan hit a combined 302/348/458, with 62 runs, 60 RBIs, 23 doubles, 2 triples, 15 home runs, and a 32/133 BB/K ratio. “We asked Ryan to do a lot of different things for us this year and he really produced,” Director of Minor League operations Hadi Raad said. “He played a good outfield, we know about his glove at first, he’s athletic and he’s another guy with a lot of juice in his bat. He kind of reminds me of a Tyler Austin-type. He’s got power the other way and he can put the ball deep into the seats. He bounced back and forth some, and he continued to produce at both levels.”
