Personal: Born Ryan William Waldhart on December 30, 1987 in Grand Rapids, Michigan ... nickname is Wally ... son of Bill and Karen Waldhart ... favorite TV shows are 24 and Scrubs ... his strangest habit is smelling his glasses before he uses them ... what makes him a good baseball player is being the hardest worker on the field and his aggressiveness ... if he could go anywhere in the world he would go back to Africa ... Waldhart is majoring in health sciences.
