Ryan Curtis is a transfer who came after his first semester and joined the Eagles squad. Ryan is an outfielder with tremendous speed, which is one of the positions the eagles were lacking going into the season. Curtis worked hard in the few weeks he was at Eastern and was ready to be back competing on the field. A natural competitor he earned a start in the Eagles first game and batted leadoff in the first game. He made an impact right away, from hitting triples and doubles, to chasing fly ball and making plays defensively.
