Ryan Farr, a 3-year varsity starter at West Ranch High School will be taking his talents to California Lutheran University (Cal Lutheran). The stand-out player was not only a star on the field but in the classroom as well with a 4.00 GPA.
At the start of his varsity career his sophomore year things did not come easy. “Offense was a struggle for the first year of varsity as the upperclassmen arms made it tough on him” said head coach Casey Burrill.
It was Farr’s ability to field the ball that made him a standout. He anchored down the third base position his sophomore. “I feel that it has given me a lot of experience with pressure situations,” said Farr.
After his sophomore season he would be moved to shortstop for his junior and senior seasons.
His junior year he tallied 40 putouts throughout the season. Although his senior season was rudely interrupted by the current pandemic he managed to get 19 put outs in an 11 game span.
After a great high school career and a terrific GPA Cal Lutheran took interest in Farr. The feeling would be neutral because he was impressed by the athletics and academics the Cal Lutheran had to provide.
Despite Farr not being able to go to any Cal Lutheran games or do an overnight stay due to the pandemic he still got a feel for the school. “Overall I really like the atmosphere and feel the school is a great fit for me,” said Farr.
The West Ranch community as well as Farr is excited to see him compete at the next level and hopefully make a College World Series run.
“We are thrilled for Ryan. Cal Lutheran is getting a great baseball player and an even better person,” said Burrill.
