Ryan Zimmerman Bio- This young third baseman actually started as a shortstop in his collegiate career. With outstanding performance, he was listed among the top 10 in Virginia for doubles, hits, and RBIs, even setting a new school record for hits in a season. Initially, Zimmerman played for the 2004 USA Baseball National Team, winning the gold medal in the FISU II World University Baseball Championships.
Then in 2005, the Washington Nationals drafted him in the first round, followed by being sent down to the Minors. However, with a roster expansion in September that same year, he was called up to the Majors, splitting time at third base but soon becoming starter. In 2006, he was named All-American by Baseball America and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Then in April, Zimmerman hit his first MLB homerun and in June on Father’s Day with his dad sitting proudly in the stands, he had his 10th MLB homerun but also first walk-off homerun.
Winning a Gold Glove Award, Silver Slugger Award, and Fielding Bible Award, all in 2009 makes Zimmerman a hometown favorite. A five-year contract was signed in April of 2009 for him to continue playing with the Nationals, which is why buying a Ryan Zimmerman rookie card now through eBay or a sports memorabilia store is a good idea.
