 Biographical Information
Ryan Theriot was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in the 3rd round of the 2001 amateur draft. He was signed by scout Jim Crawford and sent to the High-A Daytona Cubs (Luis Montanez was at Low-A) to make his pro debut that summer.
Theriot drove in the winning run in the 10,000th win in Chicago Cubs history; they were the second franchise to that level, following the Giants. Theriot came up with a 6-6 tie, two outs and a man on second in the 10th inning on April 23, 2008 against Kip Wells and singled home Mike Fontenot for the historic win.
Theriot began his minor league career as a switch-hitter, but struggles from the left side ultimately led him to abandon the practice in 2006.
