Don't let his casual demeanor fool you.
While he spends most of his time with a broad smile on his face cracking jokes, mouthing off, and otherwise doing everything other than what he's supposed to be doing much to my constant chagrin... He's one FIERCE competitor.
And this past weekend he earned the game ball for it.
He made an awesome stop running from the midpoint between 2nd and 3rd base running past what I can only assume was the actual short stop to snag a ball headed for 2nd base. He came up with it, and made the throw down to first. While the kid was actually safe it was one impressive play and some serious hustle to pull it off. Way to go, Ry!
