94 + Joeseph Ortiz + Leury Garcia + Nick Tepesch + Robbie Erlin + Ross Wolf + Chris McGuiness = 100. 

He has done it. Just moments ago, Chris McGuiness ran onto the field in the bottom of the first inning at the Rogers Centre in Toronto as a member of the Texas Rangers. He is batting eighth in the lineup and due up third in the top of the second. He is the 100th RoughRiders alumni to make the big leagues and sixth this season.

Note: To make this list, the player could not have simply been on a rehab assignment. The player must have been on the active roster for at least one day. Furthermore, not all of the players on this list made their MLB debut following their time with Frisco. Ross Wolf, for example, pitched in the big leagues before pitching for the RoughRiders, but played in the big leagues after he was a RoughRiders pitcher as well. Any player who is a RoughRider and then goes onto the majors qualifies (Roy Oswalt is another good example of this scenario).

Baseball term of the day: callup - a player who has been promoted to the major leagues
