Hamilton College's Ryan Wolfsberg '17 (Lincoln, Mass./St. Sebastian's School) spent most of his summer at the Major League Baseball (MLB) Urban Youth Academy and played for the Academy Barons in the California Collegiate League.

The academy is part of MLB's Urban Youth Initiative and is located on the campus of El Camino College Compton Center in Compton. The Barons were managed by former MLB all-star and World Series champion Ken Landreaux, who was an outfielder with the California Angels, Minnesota Twins and Los Angeles Dodgers during his 11-year career.

Wolfsberg split his playing time between third base and left field for the Barons. He hit .306 with three doubles and a triple, drove in 10 runs and scored six before his season ended early due to injury.
