Penn State Abington Senior Ryan McCarty has signed a contract with the Toronto Blue Jays after the Major League Baseball Draft ended on Tuesday. He is signed as an undrafted free agent.
McCarty has starred at Penn State Abington and recently won the NCAA Division III Player of the Year. While more than one team expressed an interest in McCarty, he chose Toronto and became the first Penn State Abington player ever to sign a professional baseball contract.
In a released statement, McCarty said: “I want people to know they can achieve anything they dream of if they truly believe it and put their mind to it…I would not have accomplished this goal without the support of the Penn State Abington family who have had my back since I arrived on campus.”
