Biographical Information[edit]

Ryan LaMarre was the hero of the exhibition game played between the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays in front of over 52,000 fans at Stade Olympique in Montreal, QC on April 1, 2016. LaMarre hit a double off Pat McCoy with two outs in the 10th inning, driving in Travis Shaw and Chris Young for a 4-2 win.

He played sparingly in the major leagues from 2015 to 2017, lining up with three different teams for short stints each season. At the start of the 2018 season, he saw more extensive playing time for a fourth team, the Minnesota Twins, hitting .263 in 43 games. On July 9th, he was claimed off waivers by the Chicago White Sox. At that point he had yet to hit a major league homer, even though he had already been used twice as a pitcher in mop-up relief in blow-out losses. On August 14th, he hit his first big league homer and ironically it bounced straight into the hands of his uncle who was attending the game at Comerica Park in Detroit, MI. He was born in the area and still has family there. The homer came in his 168th plate appearance, spread over five teams.
