Ryan Faer Indians Baseball Strength Coach MLB

Ryan Faer, the Cleveland Indians’ minor league strength coordinator, joined me to talk about how he landed his job as a coach in pro baseball and his day-to-day duties. We also discussed mental health and its ramifications and challenges for athletes.

Mental health and the mental stress of pro sports is rarely discussed, often perceived as weakness. But Ryan opened up about his own struggles and some advice on what athletes can do if they need help or find themselves struggling. Listen in to this great conversation on Dear Baseball Gods.

  1. EP 76 with Ryan Faer was one of the most honest, courageous conversations I’ve listened to and something that needs to be discussed by everyone – players, coaches and parents. Everyone will have to deal with someone that has a mental health problem at some point. It could be a family member, friend, coworker, stranger or themselves. Recognizing it and treating it like any other illness is the first step towards curing it. Keep up the good work!
