Personal

My name is Bryan Ruby and I am an American Switch-hitting ballplayer. I have played in 6 Countries overseas to-date: 1 summer Season in Germany, 1 Season in Guatemala, and tournaments/games in Austria, Peru, Chile, and Switzerland. 

I graduated in 2019 from Vassar College in New York-where I was Team Captain for 2 years. In college, I hit over .300 with power from both sides of the plate, receiving 1st Team All-Conference selection in 2019, as well as being chosen as a finalist for my school’s Outstanding Athletic Career award. I consistently hit in the middle of the order and played a pivotal role for our team, including hitting .435 with a .514 on-base percentage in the Liberty League conference. I represented over 500 athletes in Student Government, and I was one of only two athletes from my school to attend the NCAA Student-Athlete Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. In 2018, I won the team award for high character on the field, and in 2019 I won my College’s Award for Competitiveness, Dedication, and Leadership.

Defensively, I can play many different positions and pitch if needed. In college, I set a conference record as the first player to play all 9 positions in one game. Also in college, I struck out 41 batters in 43 innings as the team’s closer. I primarily play infield, but I can play any position the team needs. 

My father is a former Division 1 College coach in the US, and I have also spent time coaching everything from German youth to US Collegiate Division 1 players. Overseas I have coached in Germany and Cuba, and I am willing to help coach one of the teams in your Club. 

It is my dream to play baseball and I will travel to any destination to play! Please watch my highlight tape on Youtube by searching ‘Bryan Ruby Baseball’.

Matt Righter

Baseball Coach, Vassar College

Bryan is a hard worker and will do whatever it takes to win a game, even if it were to his detriment. In fact, Bryan played every single position for our team this year because of injuries and actually did a pretty good job!
In his time here at Vassar, Bryan was a two year captain and all two time all conference player. He was revered by faculty and administrators as he often found ways to connect others from all other areas around campus.
Bryan had a way of making others feel welcomed and always included them even if they were a little different than your typical athlete. We have been fortunate to have Bryan on our team and could see him doing the same types of things for any other program. He will also outwork any other player to accomplish his goals!

Dave Lasnier

Coach/Trainer (formerly with Arizona Diamondbacks)

I was Bryan's performance coach this past off season. Bryan is a very driven individual who possesses a strong work ethic. He has a lot of intrinsic motivation and doesn't need to be constantly pushed to work hard. It's actually quite the contrary that I have experienced with him; he is always trying to do more and get extra work in. A few times during the off season I had to pull the reigns on him a little because I was judging he was doing too much and it was affecting his recovery. Athletes don't always respond well to such recommendation because those athletes who work very hard tend to be brought up with the mentality that more is always better, which may have been the case with Bryan. But he trusted me enough to listen and apply my recommendation. He is very diligent and willing to listen when people have his best interest in mind. It ended paying huge dividends for him, as he started to perform better and got rid of nagging pains by doing a better job at controlling his training volume. I would also describe him as a perfectionist, as he always tries to do things better and is humble enough to ask for feedback when he thinks he needs it. Overall Bryan is a great individual and I strongly believe he would do all he can to contribute to any team he would be on.

Ross Trachtenberg

Former Coach (also Professional Scout)

I have know Bryan since he was in elementary school and was his Varsity high school coach for three seasons before I moved on to coach at the college level. I have remained in contact with Bryan since that point as a resource for baseball. Bryan is without a doubt one of the top individuals I have ever coached in terms of character, integrity and responsibility.

Bryan has always been mature in his approach to baseball and academics. He is socially conscience and cares deeply about the people around him. To me, he was always an extension of the coaching staff as he led by example and was an appropriate vocal leader.

I applaud Bryan for the way he handled a difficult situation on the baseball team at Emory University out of high school. Many players in his situation simply quit playing or accept not being an active participant. Bryan used his resourcefulness to find a better baseball situation at Vassar College and was able to have the type of collegiate baseball experience he dreamed of.

I cannot bestow enough praise on the high quality person Bryan has always been. He is a young man I would want on my coaching staff if given the opportunity to hire him.
