The Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide is held annually at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, a suburb of Columbus.

 

The Tournament, founded and hosted by Jack Nicklaus, is conducted each year with three goals in mind:

  • to honor the memory of individuals living and deceased who have distinguished themselves in the game of golf
  • to showcase the world’s best golfers competing on one of the most challenging venues in the world for the enjoyment of spectators
  • to benefit many Greater Columbus Charities in alliance with the Nicklaus Children’s Healthcare Foundation Nationwide Children’s Hospital and numerous other local organizations

Red Sox mourn loss of former catcher Mike Ryan

Mike Ryan in 1966 By Unknown author Boston Red Sox via tradingcarddb.com Public Domain https commons.wikimedia.org

 

Former Catcher Played Seven Seasons in Red Sox Organization

 

July 10, 2020

 

BOSTON, MA—The Boston Red Sox mourn the loss of Mike Ryan, who passed away in his sleep on Tuesday at the age of 78 in Wolfeboro, NH. He spent 35 years in professional baseball, including his first seven in the Red Sox organization as a player. A former catcher, he played in 79 regular season games for the Red Sox during their 1967 Impossible Dream season, also appearing in Game 4 of the 1967 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Born in Haverhill, MA, on November 25, 1941, Ryan attended St. James High School. He signed a contract with the Red Sox as an amateur free agent in October 1960 and began his professional career in 1961 with the Olean Red Sox of the New York-Penn League.

Ryan appeared in 636 major league games from 1964-74 with the Red Sox (1964-67), Philadelphia Phillies (1968-73), and Pittsburgh Pirates (1974). In 630 games behind the plate, he posted a .991 fielding percentage and threw out 43.6 percent of attempted base stealers (181-for-415).

In 1975, following his playing career, Ryan was hired by the Pirates as the manager of Class-A Charleston, where he remained through the 1976 season. He was hired by Philadelphia as a minor league catching instructor prior to the 1977 season, and that year he assumed the manager role for Oklahoma, the Phillies’ Triple-A club.

For 16 seasons from 1980-95, Ryan served as Philadelphia’s major league bullpen coach. In his first year in that role, the Phillies captured the National League pennant and their first World Series championship. During his time as the club’s bullpen coach, the Phillies also advanced to the World Series in 1983 and 1993.

Ryan is survived by his wife, Suzanne, to whom he was married for 52 years. He also is survived by his five siblings: Maureen Ryan and her husband, Bill; Anthony Ryan; James Ryan and his wife, Becky; Daniel Ryan; and Steven Ryan and his wife, Sheila.

In Ryan’s memory, his family wishes to dedicate a large, granite bench, in Haverhill. To contribute to the memorial, donations can be made to the Mike Ryan Memorial Bench Fund, c/o Pentucket Bank, 1 Merrimack Street, Haverhill, MA 01830.

KANSAS CITY, MO (July 11, 2020) – The Kansas City Royals today announced that catcher Cam Gallagher has tested positive for Covid-19. Gallagher, 27, was Kansas City’s second round selection in the 2011 First Year Player Draft. He has issued the following statement:

“To say this caught me by surprise would be an understatement,” said Gallagher. “I played in last night’s intrasquad game and felt great, then received the news this morning that my most recent test had come back positive. I am asymptomatic and will continue to work as hard as I can to stay ready while I quarantine. The first couple of weeks of workouts have just made me that much more excited about our ballclub and I can’t wait to rejoin them and compete as soon as I’m allowed.”

Philadelphia Phillies mourn loss of longtime player and coach Mike Ryan

(courtesy Phillies)

 

July 10, 2020

 

The Phillies have learned that Mike Ryan, longtime player and coach in the organization, has passed away. He was 78.

Michael James Ryan was born on Nov. 25, 1941, in Haverhill, Mass. Originally signed by the Boston Red Sox in 1960, he made his major league debut with the team in 1964 and was traded to the Phillies in December 1967.

Nicknamed “Irish”, Ryan spent 16 years as a bullpen coach with the Phillies (1980-95), winning a World Series in 1980 and the National League pennant in 1983 and 1993. He is the only person in Phillies history to coach in three World Series and remains the second-longest tenured coach in franchise history, behind former teammate, the late John Vukovich (17 years, 1988-2004).

“Mike Ryan is one of the more underrated people in Phillies history,” said Phillies Chairman Emeritus Bill Giles. “His tenure was marked by three World Series appearances and he was a very popular presence in our clubhouse for many years. On a personal note, my appreciation for Mike runs deep as he quite successfully caught our ceremonial first ball at the first game in Veterans Stadium history. Off the field, he was tough as nails and a very loyal man to the Phillies organization. On behalf of the Phillies family, we send our condolences to his wife, Suzanne, and all of Irish’s many family members and friends.”

On Opening Day in 1971, Ryan caught the ceremonial first ball, which was dropped by a helicopter high above Veterans Stadium. It was the first in a tradition of Opening Day “First Ball Acts” at the Vet. Ryan repeated the act in 1981 and 1995 and a modified version in 1991.

Ryan enjoyed an 11-year major league career as a catcher, playing for the Red Sox (1964-67), Phillies (1968-73) and Pittsburgh Pirates (1974). Defensively, he posted a .991 fielding percentage in 632 career games (570 starts) behind the dish, committing just 34 errors in 3,832 total chances. He tied for the major league lead in assists by a catcher (79) in 1969, outpacing future Hall of Famer Johnny Bench (76) despite playing in 15 fewer games that year.

Ryan appeared in one postseason game during his career, going 0-for-2 as a reserve in Game 4 of the 1967 World Series in St. Louis.

In six seasons with the Phillies, he batted .190 with 41 doubles, six triples, 21 home runs and 91 RBI in 392 games. In 1969, he set career highs in many categories, including games (133), home runs (12) and RBI (44). On May 2, 1970, Ryan was involved in a very memorable game at Candlestick Park. The Phillies’ starting catcher, Tim McCarver, broke a finger on a foul tip off the bat of future Hall of Famer Willie Mays. Ryan replaced McCarver in the game and, two batters later, also sustained a broken finger on a slide at home plate from another future Hall of Famer, Willie McCovey. Ryan finished the inning but was lifted for a pinch-hitter.

Ryan is survived by his wife, Suzanne.
