Ryan became hooked on baseball as a youngster in Maryland and considers Cal Ripken Jr. his favorite player of all time.

Ryan’s Baseball fever was further enhanced after a move to Florida where he was able to attend countless spring training and minor league games with his mother.

It was during the Florida years that Ryan grew to appreciate the soothing properties of a day by the water as well as a day spent in the ballpark. Despite now living in Texas, Ryan still returns to Florida each year for a week of Grapefruit League Spring Training games.

On average Ryan attends 8-10 baseball games a month at various stadiums throughout the state and surrounding region. A goal of his is to visit all 30 MLB ballparks at least once. Ryan tries to visit at least 3 new ballparks a year on the Independent, Minor, and Major League circuits.
