Even though the major league baseball season has less than two weeks left, another former Valley Leaguer has made his major league debut: Mac Williamson (Harrisonburg 2011)!
Mac definitely deserved the callup. He opened the 2015 season in Double-A Richmond, and over 69 games and 259 at-bats he hit 293/366/429, with 16 doubles, 2 triples, 5 home runs, and 42 RBIs. On June 26th, he was raised a level to Triple-A Sacramento. Over 54 games and 189 at-bats, Mac hit 249/370/439, with 12 doubles and 8 home runs.
So over the two levels, he hit a combined 275/368/433 in 448 at-bats. He totaled 28 doubles, 2 triples, 13 home runs, 73 RBIs, and 51 walks.
Mac was called up to San Francisco on September 16th, but he didn’t appear in a game until last night, when he struck out pinch hitting. Mac joins Adam Liberatore (Waynesboro 2007-08), Jack Leathersich (Haymarket 2009), Scott Copeland (Staunton 2007), Guido Knudson (Woodstock 2009), and Rico Noel (Covington 2008) on the list of former Valley Leaguers making their major league debut in 2015!
Way to go, Mac!
