Ryan Minor, 2001 Fleer Triple Crown #179
-He never hit a major league homer with a runner on base. He only hit five round-trippers total: three solo shots with the O's in 1999 and a pair of solo blasts with the Expos in 2001.
-Ryan hit the first home run in Lancaster Barnstormers history on May 17, 2005.
-His brother Damon, a first baseman who played parts of four seasons with the Giants, was born on the same date: January 5, 1974. What are the odds? ;-)
