U16/U15 DEVELOPMENT COACHING STAFF
Troy is a 3 year Reds alumni and has always shown tremendous leadership skills. He is a late bloomer and a converted pitcher from his catching years. In 3-4 short years he became one of the best pitchers in Canadian University baseball for Carleton University.
He has also won multiple awards with the Reds including the Bulldog and Pitcher of the Year. Named Team Captain in his last year, Troy has shown all the qualities to take on this role and take these young athletes to the next level.
Ryan graduated from Canterbury High School in 2015, where he played varsity baseball. During his baseball career north of the border, he played for a number of local clubs including the South Ottawa Little League Blues , the Ottawa Knights, the Montreal Giants, the Ottawa Nepean Canadians, and the Capital City Reds.
In 2016, Ryan began studying at Spokane Falls Community College in his hometown of Spokane, Washington, where he spent the first two years of his college career, and
competed within the Northwestern Athletic Conference. After graduating with an Associates of Arts degree in 2018, Ryan transferred to Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan to study Criminal Justice, and to compete within the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference of the NAIA.
Academically, Ryan has solidified his position on the President’s List at both of these institutions, maintaining a 4.0 GPA throughout the first three and a half years of his college education.
Ryan Burnside will be taking care of the catchers and the hitters on the U16 team. Burnside is known for his hitting and we can go as far as saying he is one of the better amateur hitters in Canada. Last year he was the MVP in a very good OUA division at Carleton U. He was also the Hitter of the Year for the Capital City Reds Summer Collegiate team and showed time after time why he is such a feared hitter. He has recently signed with the Hamilton Cardinals of the IBL.
The players and the organization are very lucky to have him show the younger generation a trick or two.
