Kole Calhoun has made the big leagues. He had two amazing seasons as a Sun Devil: between 2009 and 2010, he played in 125 games, drove in 112 runs, crushed 29 home runs and scored 115 times.

Calhoun was a fan favorite for coming up big at the right time. In the second round of the 2009 College World Series, he drove in six runs against North Carolina to stave off ASU's elimination. For his heroic efforts, Calhoun earned a spot on the All-Tournament Team that year.

Now, Calhoun takes the field as a member of the Los Angeles Angels after cruising through their minor league system. According to our friends at Halos Heaven, an injury to Vernon Wells necessitated this call-up. Calhoun will likely be a bench player, but could see a decent amount of action between the corner outfield positions.

Sun Devil Nation is proud of you, Kole! And the best part, according to DieHardDevil, is that he is the 100th ASU baseball player to make the majors.
