Last night, St Mary parishioner and Holy Cross Academy Alumni Ryan McBroom made his big league debut, playing First Base and batting sixth for the Kansas City Royals in their game against the Detroit Tigers. Ryan collected a single in his first at bat and a walk in the 8th inning, in addition to some nifty defense at first.
Ryan is the son of a former HCA teacher, and nephew of Ann Skinner, who works in our parish office. His other aunt is a current teacher at HCA. Ryan worked in the parish office as a high schooler, and went to college at West Virginia University.
