Rosy Ryan Stats

Rosy Ryan was born on Tuesday, March 15, 1898, in Worcester, Massachusetts. Ryan was 21 years old when he broke into the big leagues on September 7, 1919, with the New York Giants. His biographical data, year-by-year hitting stats, fielding stats, pitching stats (where applicable), career totals, uniform numbers, salary data and miscellaneous items-of-interest are presented by Baseball Almanac on this comprehensive Rosy Ryan baseball stats page.

"Curve pitching is very popular on this club. Perhaps I ought to say it's too common. Most pitchers, I believe, don't like to throw many curves because they are hard on the arm. McGraw , however, is a great believer in curve pitching and that he says goes. I once saw Rosy Ryan get into a game, pitch 57 curve balls and only 17 fast balls. Thats a pretty tough proportion." - Virgil Barnes (Baseball Magazine, September 1927, Page 45)

After Rosy Ryan hung up his cleats, he was a Minor League manager for the Eau Claire Bears (1941-1942) and the Minneapolis Millers (1944-1945). He then went to the front office as a General Manager for the Millers (1946-1957), Phoenix Giants, (1958-1959), Tacoma Giants (1960-1965), and the Phoenix Giants once again (1966-1973). The College of the Holy Cross Hall of Fame called his name (newspaper clipping above) between his stints as General Manager in Phoenix and Tacoma.
