Career highlights and awards

Wilfred Patrick Dolan Ryan (March 15, 1898 in Worcester, Massachusetts – December 10, 1980 in Scottsdale, Arizona) was a pitcher in Major League Baseball. He pitched from 1919 to 1933, appearing in three consecutive World Series for the New York Giants from 1922 to 1924. He managed in the minor leagues from 1941 to 1942 and 1944 to 1945 and was later a minor league general manager. In 1961 he was presented with the King of Baseball award given by Minor League Baseball. He was the first relief pitcher to ever hit a home run in the postseason (in Game 3 of the 1924 World Series), a feat matched only by Travis Wood (in Game 2 of the 2016 NLDS) and Brandon Woodruff (in Game 1 of the 2018 NLCS).

Ryan attended College of the Holy Cross.
