Personal

Ryan hits for both power and average and can hit to all fields.

Defensively, he has a strong, accurate arm and has enough speed to track down balls hit into the outfield gaps.  He is a good baserunner and is very versatile.  His primary positions are second base, third base and right field, but he has the ability to slot into any position.

Ryan describes himself as “a leader in the clubhouse who knows how to keep everyone positive and in a winning mind set.  I know how to lead by example and keep a positive attitude. I’m very even-keeled. I’m a hard worker who works outside of games and practice, and I take very good care of my health and fitness.”

  • Won back-to-back MVP awards in men’s amateur league All-Star Game

  • Played the last 3 seasons with the Kansas City Monarchs of Kansas City Amateur Baseball Association.

Testimonials

Jonathan Krysa

Manager of Kansas City Monarchs (former professional pitcher)

I’m happy to inform you that he is as advertised and glad that he is seeking to play elsewhere and help coach youth teams oversees. I can vouch for him as being a great clubhouse and team player. He is a good hitter for us and typically likes to play 2nd base now as his main position but can play 3B and can pitch if needed. He did play OF a few games for us but would say he is more comfortable in the infield. He has batted in the 3, 4, 5, 6 hole for us this year.

Teammate (played pro ball in france)

Aaron Crow, Former MLB All-Star pitcher @ KC Royals

Mentor, pitching and conditioning coach

Ryan and I would work out together in the offseason when I was playing, and we played against each other on travel teams while being recruited. He's a really good ball player. Since we've been friends when I got done playing I started watching him in the men's league he would play in and I started working with him. I would throw him batting practice and give him pitching lessons. He has a lot of power and he used to catch so he has a very good understanding of the game.
Ryan would be a perfect addition to any team and provide pop in the middle of the line up and be able to drive in runs. Any team that signs him is going to be glad that they did !
