The correct answer to BJ´s question is Ian Parmly, who had a cup of coffee last year. Prior that it had been 22 years since Doug Brady in 95.

Texas missed out on a great pr opportunity when they traded Ryan. They could have had Cordell, Texas Ranger in the outfield.

Ryan blasted his first major league home run last night at the expense of Cider's favorite team the Baltimore Orioles. Hopefully they gave him the ball

BJ, that dinger (and the fact that he's an LU alum) made the local paper today.

Depending on if you want to count it or not, a guy named Josh Rupe pitched in 17 games for Liberty during the 2001 season as a freshman. He then transferred to a JuCo school - Louisburg College - and was drafted by the White Sox.

Rupe wound up pitching for three teams (Texas, KC, Baltimore) across six seasons, and logged a 5-3 record with a 5.06 ERA in 90 games across 154.2 IP.

LU's website doesn't have info from the 2001 season, but here's a news report from ODU indicating that Rupe was, in fact, at Liberty:
