Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"I'm going to go out there and play and have fun. I'm looking forward to winning and showing that I'm healthy. I guess that's my biggest thing. I'm feeling 100 percent right now. I don't want to be 10-20 years down the road wondering if I would've played and got picked up. I know that probably all the guys in this league, they're goal is not to be independent ball all year. You can be put me in that group. I want to get back to big leagues, and if this is way I have to do it, that's what I have to do. I'm going to make the best of it and it sounds like I'm going to be very pleased going out there." - Ryan Freel in The Patriot Pulse (Ryan Dunleavy, 04/09/2010, 'Ryan Freel brings major-league effort, resume to Patriots', Source )

Did you know that Ryan Freel was inducted into the Tallahassee Community College Eagle Athletics Hall of Fame on September 28, 2007? Take a look beyond the stats with this Tallahassee Community College Press Release:

Meet Eagle Athletics Hall of Fame Inductee Ryan Freel

"Making a Major League Baseball team's roster is the dream of so many youth baseball players, and he has had the opportunity to live this dream. Over 100 players have worn a TCC jersey and only four have had the priveledge of making it to the highest level." -- Brian Anweiler, TCC Athletic Director

Ryan Freel, a native of Jacksonville, Fla., signed with Tallahassee Community College in January 1994, as a senior at Englewood High School. Though he only played one season in an Eagle uniform, he made an immediate impact, helping TCC win its first-ever Panhandle Conference Championship in 1995 en route to a 35-14 record.

During his only season at TCC, Freel, who played second base, established a single-season record for stolen bases with 38, a mark that still stands 12 years later. His total also ranks sixth on the school's all-time stolen base list. Following the 1995 season, Freel signed a professional contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

After spending parts of six seasons in the Blue Jays' farm system, Freel made his major league debut with Toronto, as a defensive replacement, on April 4, 2001 , against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. One day later, he singled in his first big league plate appearance. Though his first stint in "The Show" lasted only nine games, it served as the foundation for what has become a solid career.

Freel didn't return to the majors until 2003, this time as a member of the Cincinnati Reds. When he was recalled on August 20, he wasted no time making a splash, becoming just the fifth player to hit his first big league home run off future Hall of Fame pitcher Randy Johnson . Appearing in 43 games during four separate stints with the big league club, Freel had found a home in Cincinnati.

Freel's breakout season came in 2004 when he started 128 games for the Reds. In doing so, he became the first major league player in twelve years to start at least ten games at five different positions (2B, 3B, RF, CF, LF). Though he led the Reds in seven categories, including triples (8) and stolen bases (37), it was his defensive tenacity that won him a place in the hearts of Reds' fans.

The fleet-footed Freel also led the Reds in stolen bases in 2005 and 2006, becoming the first player in 18 years to lead the club three consecutive seasons. He has also become a fixture on the "Web Gems" segment of ESPN's popular Baseball Tonight program.

To date, Freel has a .270 batting average and 136 stolen bases in 505 career games.

Ryan Freel, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound , is the first former Major League Baseball player to have his brain studied by the Boston University Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy and the first to be diagnosed with chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Major League Baseball added a mandatory seven-day disabled list for head injuries due to the diagnosis during the Winter Meetings in 2013.
