Congrats to Caleb Baragar, Ryan Halstead and the @RiverCats as they have won the Triple AAA National Championship Game. Caleb Baragar takes home the MVP of the game trophy as well. #iubase pic.twitter.com/aFZLDJhvYo

So, in just over a year, he went from pitching in Class A Advanced to making his Major League Debut for the San Francisco Giants at Dodger Stadium. Not only did he pitch at Dodger Stadium but it went really well.
Caleb is the 30th Major League debut for our Hoosier Alumni but I’m sure there’s plenty more going from The Bart to The Show in the future.
