Mr. DAINES, Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Caleb Frare of Custer County for becoming the most recent Montanan to play Major League Baseball.  

Born in Billings, Montana, Caleb, like most boys, dreamt of becoming a professional baseball player. Throughout his adolescent life, Caleb advanced in all levels of baseball. As a standout of the Miles City Outlaws baseball club, Caleb was on track to a promising career in baseball. 

After graduation from Custer County High School in 2012, Caleb was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 11th round. Caleb was recently traded by the New York Yankees to the Chicago White Sox, where he played on their triple-A team out of Charlotte, NC. Caleb received the phone call he had so patiently been awaiting his whole life. The White Sox had called him up for his first Major League debut. In his debut, Caleb pitched a perfect inning in the Chicago White Sox’s 8-0 win over the Boston Red Sox.

I congratulate Caleb on such a tremendous achievement and look forward to the many more milestones he will complete during his baseball career.
