LEWISTON, ID - A former LCSC Warrior has finally made it to the big show.

Sean Halton became the 15th alumnus of the Lewis-Clark State College baseball program to appear in major league baseball on Thursday, singling in a pinch-hit at-bat for the Milwaukee Brewers in a game against the Chicago Cubs.

Halton starred at LCSC in 2008 and 2009, after which he was drafted by Milwaukee in the 13th round of the 2009 MLB first-year player draft. The first baseman-outfielder was an NAIA honorable mention All-American following his senior campaign, and hit 25 home runs in his LCSC career.

He is the first LCSC player to make his first appearance in major league baseball since Carlos Fisher debuted for the Cincinnati Reds in 2009.
