Greg HollandKansas City Royals All-Star reliever Greg Holland will be the guest speaker at the 2014 Catamount Baseball Fundraiser Banquet on Saturday, Jan. 18 in the Grand Ballroom of the on-campus A.K. Hinds University Center.

“We are honored to have former Catamount great and current MLB All Star, Greg Holland, back on campus for our baseball banquet,” said Moranda, who is entering his seventh season at WCU. “His story of tremendous perseverance and achievement are unprecedented. To go from a WCU walk-on to a Major League All Star is an inspiration to all.”

Holland was drafted by Kansas City in the 10th round of the 2007 MLB First-Year Player Draft on the heels of WCU’s runner-up finish in the NCAA Baseball Chapel Hill Regional. He went on to make his Major League debut on August 2, 2010 against the Oakland Athletics.

Last season, Holland was named Kansas City’s “2013 Bruce Rice Pitcher of the Year” for a second-consecutive season as he set a Royals franchise record with 47 saves. Only two other MLB relievers had more saves than did Holland in 2013, Baltimore’s Jim Johnson and Craig Kimbrel with the Atlanta Braves, both with 50. Holland also matched the Royals’ single-season record for strikeouts by a reliever, fanning an American League reliever-best 103 including closing the season with a K, matching the club record set in 1971 by Jim York.
