"I have had the pleasure of knowing Ryan Nelson and his family for almost two decades now. We've shared a dugout together as part of a coaching staff, while remaining close friends off the field. His leadership skills, along with his understanding of the amateur game, have helped me quickly identify players and target prospects. I've watched him as a player, as my assistant coach, into running his own club, now onto orchestrating an organization. I have no doubt whatever he does will become successful while continuing to put together top notch teams that will compete on a national level. I'd trust him with my own son, and recommend him to any family who is interested in guiding their son in a successful baseball career."
