Ryan Garton: One Win Wonder

The Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) recently published a book called ONE-WIN WONDERS.   It is a compendium of biographies representing 57 major league pitchers whose careers consisted of only one victory.  Among those pitchers is former Big Train player Ryan Garton, who was with the 2011 Bethesda team that captured the #1 ranking in the nation.  His biography was authored by Big Train’s historian, Bill Hickman. 


Big Train Super Seasons

For every Renfroe, Gilbert, or Brown, there is a Luke Adkins, a three year player with the Big Train and a member of the Ripken League Hall of Fame, or a Matt Hiserman, who holds the teams career record for saves at 12, that never broke through at any level in a major league organization.
