Whit Merrifield helped the University of South Carolina win the 2010 College World Series, and the Kansas City Royals would draft him in the Ninth Round that year.

Merrifield finally made the roster in 2016 and once he got there, he would win the Second Baseman’s job.  Merrifield became a nice surprise in that in 2017 he led the American League in Stolen Bases (34), and he did so again in 2018 (45).  2018 also saw Merrifield finish first in Hits (192) with a .304 Batting Average.  Merrifield had even more hits in 2019 (206), and he again led the AL in that category, and he also captured the Triples lead (10).

As of this writing, Merrifield is still a Royal, and is in his fifth season.
