Review - long overdue

Ryan has an awesome background and is more than qualified to be leading a podcast on baseball. He ties in his experiences and discusses the game of baseball in its entirety with the guests. What’s most enjoyable about this podcast is how Ryan’s personality of being a servant leader and a kind man comes through so clearly. I have had the privilege to get to meet and know Ryan over the year and he’s just a great human being! Show some support and love!

Best,
Jon Gold
