Ryan was born in Chicago, Illinois. When he was three years old, he first played tee ball. At age 11, he began playing organized baseball.
Hitting a walk-off single to win the little league championship has left a lasting impression on his memory. As a junior in high school, he decided baseball for him meant a full-time occupation.
His favorite baseball player is Miami Marlins right fielder Giancarlo Stanton. He would like to be drafted into the minor leagues after playing with the Saints this season.
He enjoys mountain biking, anything to do with film, real estate and staying fit. He volunteers his time at the coaching little league, and at the Boys and Girls Club.
Favorite MLB Team: New York Yankees
