Northwestern’s top baseball player from last season is getting his chance at making the majors.

Former Wildcat Kyle Ruchim, who had been playing baseball this past season with the independent-league Schaumburg Boomers, had his contract purchased by the Chicago White Sox, the Boomers announced Thursday.

The Buffalo Grove native batted .306 throughout his career at NU and was named to the All-Big Ten third team in 2013. In 60 games with the Boomers, Ruchim hit .304 with 3 home runs, and now he will have a chance to advance his way through the White Sox organization.
