Starting on August 12 and for the fall season, the 14U teams practice every Wednesday at Craig Ranch field #9 from 6:00-8:00 pm. Let's arrive at 5:45 pm in full practice gear (practice hat, practice jersey, baseball pants, etc). Starting August 17 and every other Monday, the 14U teams will practice at Diamond Kings in Frisco from 7:00-8:30 pm. Players can wear their shorts and practice jerseys at Diamond Kings, however; catchers may want to wear pants. Let's go learn, have fun and compete on the field!
Ryan just recently retired from playing baseball. He was drafted as a pitcher in the 18th round by the Texas Rangers in 2005 and he played for A, AA, and AAA teams including the Frisco Roughriders. In 2010, he was traded with Tanner Roark to the Washington Nationals for Christian Guzman. Thereafter, he played with the Hanwha Eagles in Korea until he recently retired. Ryan will be working the other NTX Spartan development coaches and helping train and coach our players.
