Ball State baseball has certainly made its mark on the Major Leagues through the years.  From the likes of Bryan Bullington and Thomas Howard to Larry Bigbie and Merv Rettenmund, there's a firm presence of Cardinals across MLB.

This season two Cardinals have made it to "The Show," headlined by Dean Anna cracking the New York Yankees Opening Day roster.  The accomplishment marked Anna's first appearance in the Majors and, better yet, his first time even making a 40-Man roster.  The shortstop made his MLB debut April 4th at Toronto, starting in place of future Hall-of-Famer Derek Jeter.  He collected his first hit that night and his first MLB homerun against the Red Sox six days later.

At the end of April Anna was optioned by the Yankees to Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes/Barre.  That assignment brought him to Indiana a few weeks ago when the RailRiders took on the Indianapolis Indians.  Ball State All-Access made the trip down to Victory Field and caught up with Anna, discussing his time as both a Cardinal and a pro player.  Check out that conversation here.
