Gar Ryness: The Batting Stance Guy

Gar Ryness

On Tuesday night, CBS ran a rerun of an episode of the “Late Show with David Letterman”. One of his guests was a man by the name of Gar Ryness aka “The Batting Stance Guy”.

Ryness has become an internet sensation because of his one unusual talent. He can perfectly (and comically) imitate almost any major league baseball player’s batting stance. From Pete Rose to Derek Jeter, Ryness can do them all.

The episode of the “Late Show” took place about a month ago and Ryness discussed how he got into what he does and even how his talent has gotten him access to several clubhouses around the majors. As part of his interview, he imitated former Red Sox LF Manny Ramirez as well as current Sox players David Ortiz and Kevin Youkilis. His Youkilis impression had me laughing out loud as well as his Joe Morgan impersonation.

  • Manny Ramirez is at 3:17
  • David Ortiz is at 3:51
  • Kevin Youkilis is at 5:36

Ryness has his own website which has links to his facebook page, youtube channel, and twitter account.

Like a lot of internet sensations, Ryness has his own cult following and he really appealed to me because I know that me and my friends have spent time playing wiffleball and trying to imitate the likes of Jeff Bagwell, Tony Batista, and Barry Bonds. He is a hilarious guy, so check him out.
