Christian Colon was born May 14, 1989 and is a Puerto Rican professional baseball shortstop for the Kansas City Royals of Major League Baseball.

He chose instead to attend California State University, Fullerton, where he was an All-American shortstop. He was then selected with the fourth overall pick of the 2010 MLB Draft by the Kansas City Royals. He was added to the 40-man roster on November 20, 2013.

Colon batted .296 for the Omaha Storm Chasers of the Class AAA Pacific Coast League in 2014, before he was promoted to the major leagues on June 30.

In 2013 Colon won the Puerto Rican League Rookie of the Year Award.

After entering the 2014 American League Wild Card Playoff as a pinch hitter, he knocked in the tying run on an infield single and scored the winning run on a single by Salvador Pérez

Colon served as a utility player during the 2015 season. He entered Game 5 of the 2015 World Series (his first appearance in the playoffs) in the top of the 12th as a pinch hitter. After not making a plate appearance for four weeks, he hit a single to score Jarrod Dyson for the winning run to clinch the World Series, marking the first time in history that a player in his first at bat in a World Series delivered the Series-winning run.
