On September 19, 2002, Minnesota Twins rookie outfielder Michael Ryan got 2 hits in the first inning of his major league debut in Comerica Park against the Detroit Tigers and Nate Cornejo. In what was a nine-run 1st inning for Minnesota, Ryan singled in his first two big league at-bats, and drove in two runs. But the glow of the feat was short-lived when his hits and Minnesota's 9-0 lead were wiped out when rain forced the game to be called before the top of the 3rd inning. His official big league debut would have to wait for another day: on September 20th, Ryan went 0 for 4.
In 2010, Ryan returned to the major leagues, playing at that level for the first time since 2005. He hit .205 in 22 games with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to end his MLB career, also becoming the last player to wear #27 for the Angels before Mike Trout.
