Player Profile: Ryan Anderson

I have four cards of Ryan Anderson. This one is from 1998 Team Best.

Playing career: Ryan Anderson was the Mariners’ number one pick in 1997. He never made the major leagues, as injuries cut short his minor league career at just 75 games. He did strike out a phenomenal 483 batters in 363 innings.

My memories: Ryan Anderson is 6 feet 10 inches tall. Remember when I wrote that I remembered Matt Anderson being very tall? Turns out I had mixed up pitchers names Anderson who were taken in the first round of the 1997 draft that ended up being busts.

Where he is now: Chef and Kitchen Supervisor at Sushi Roku in the W Hotel in Scottsdale, Arizona. Click the link for his reviews of Habanero Hot Sauce from Hell and Dumb Ass Hot Sauce.

Google Autocomplete Results: Ryan Anderson is seventh when you type Ryan A, between Ryan and Tatum and Ryan and Tatum O’Neal, both of which refer to the celebrity father and daughter. When you google Ryan Anderson, the first page does not contain any references to the baseball player; most are about the forward for the Orlando Magic.

Coming up next: The next profile will be Scott Anderson.
