Biography

Ryan Paul Freel is a player for the Cincinnati Reds. In 2007 he began the season primarily playing center field, but he can also play both corner outfield positions, second base, and third base.


Farney

Freel gained some notoriety in August 2006 when The Dayton Daily News reported that Freel talks to an imaginary voice in his head named Farney. Said Freel: "He's a little guy who lives in my head who talks to me and I talk to him. That little midget in my head said, 'That was a great catch, Ryan,' I said, 'Hey, Farney, I don't know if that was you who really caught that ball, but that was pretty good if it was.' Everybody thinks I talk to myself, so I tell 'em I'm talking to Farney." Freel later said that Farney's name arose from a conversation with Reds trainer Mark Mann: "He actually made a comment like, 'How are the voices in your head?' We'd play around and finally this year he said, 'What's the guy's name?' I said, 'Let's call him Farney.' So now everybody's like, 'Run, Farney, run' or 'Let Farney hit today. You're not hitting very well.'"


Collision

On May 28, 2007 Freel was injured in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates when chasing a deep drive to right-center field. Freel and right fielder Norris Hopper collided, resulting in Freel's head and neck hitting Hopper and finally the warning track.

In the collision, Freel sustained a bruises to his head and neck, as well as a suspected concussion.

Freel, worryingly, has estimated that he's had nine or ten concussions in his life. [1]



Most people believe that Ryan Freel's best season was 2004, when he stole 37 bases and hit for a .277 average.
