One Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) aide got a call up to the big leagues in 2012; just not the call he once hoped for.

Will Kline enjoyed a stellar college baseball career at Ole Miss from 2003 to 2007, leading the team as its ace pitcher his senior year. In June '07, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays had high hopes for Kline, selecting him in the second round of the major league draft. However, throughout his first minor league season, Kline struggled to find the form that allowed him to excel in college, posting a 0-4 record and a 4.97 ERA in 29 innings. To make matters worse, the Belden, Miss. native injured his arm not once but twice over the next few years. Early in the 2011 season, Kline officially hung up his spikes, retiring in May.

While Kline's baseball career came to an end, its conclusion allowed him to pursue another career, this one in politics. In September, Kline began interning for Wicker. Now the former hurler is a full-time staff member in the senator's D.C. office.
