Ryan is an All Saints Academy alumni starting spring training with the Tampa Bay Rays this season. In addition to his loving and supportive family, Ryan was joined by Dave Kormann, Rob Hollway, Coach Rick Moser, Coach John Carpenter, Coach Chris Pearce, fellow Alumnus Carson Fulmer of the Chicago White Sox, and Tampa Bay Rays Assistant Director for Minor League, Jeff McLerran. In appreciation, Ryan spoke encouraging words to the ASA students about the welcoming and supportive sense of community he felt while attending All Saints Academy. Whether it was a senior trip to the Outer Banks or daily lunches with fellow players and mentors, he made lifelong bonds and cherishes the time he spent in the All Saints community. What an inspiration Ryan Yarbrough has become....not only on the field, but off the field as well! Congratulations Ryan! We'll be cheering you on!
