Greg Holland called to the Majors by the KC Royals


What does every kid who ever picked up a bat and ball dream of? Playing in the big leagues of course.  Well that dream is coming true for former Catamount right-handed reliever Greg Holland.  He has been called up to the Major Leagues by the Kansas City Royals. 

Holland was drafted after his junior season as a 10th-round pick by Kansas City in the 2007 draft, and spent this season in Triple-A ball on the west coast. Greg is the first former Cat baseball player to be called up so far this season, but he is the 9th over all to make a Major League roster.   Currently there are 8 other former Catamounts playing professional baseball at various levels. and dreaming the same dream Greg did.  Good Luck to Greg and all the other Catamounts trying to make that dream come true.
