There was growing concern that Marist was only able to develop “Quadruple A” players, meaning that they produced players that were talented enough to get drafted, but not good enough to stick professionally. That was until September 9, 2016, when Kevin McCarthy toed the rubber for the first time as a pitcher for the Kansas City Royals.
