After spending a couple of years at Tennessee Tech University, Diressa returned home and transferred to Ryerson to play for the Rams. This will be his third and final season playing for the team.

First year spells change for Ryerson baseball player

If you take a look at the Ryerson baseball team roster, you’ll notice many of the players are from Ontario – Toronto, Markham or Scarborough, for example – but this year, the team has a new player who’s neither from Ontario, nor from Canada.

Aidan Dolan made the trek over the southern border from the U.S. to start his first year at Ryerson this fall. Dolan hails from Buffalo Grove, Ill., a town just north of Chicago.
