Ryan Andrew Vogelsong (born July 22, 1977 in Charlotte, North Carolina) is a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Philadelphia Phillies organization. He formerly played for the San Francisco former Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates. He most recently played for the Orix Buffaloes of the Nippon Professional Baseball. He graduated from Octorara Area High school in Atglen, PA in 1995 where he played baseball, basketball and soccer. He graduated from Kutztown University, in Kutztown, Pennsylvania.

He was acquired by the Pirates on July 30, 2001, from the San Francisco Giants (with whom he made his major league debut in 2001) along with outfielder Armando Ríos in exchange for pitcher Jason Schmidt and outfielder John Vander Wal. He appeared in only 2 games for the Pirates before he required Tommy John surgery that kept him out of the majors until the end of the 2003 season.

2004 marked Vogelsong's first full year in the major leagues. He spent most of the season as a starting pitcher and struggled in that role, ending the season with a 6-13 record and 6.50 ERA. He rebounded in 2005 after being moved to the bullpen, posting a 4.43 ERA and 2-2 record while primarily being used as a middle reliever.

As of the end of the 2005 season, Vogelsong had a career 10-22 record and 5.78 ERA in 100 games and 277 innings over parts of 5 seasons.

Vogelsong was acquired by the Hanshin Tigers of Japan [1] in 2007 and made his Nippon Professional Baseball debut as their starting pitcher on April 5, 2007, facing another former Major League Baseball pitcher, Kazuhisa Ishii. He won in his debut at the home stadium, Koshien Stadium, on April 12, 2007, hitting a home run in the bottom of the second inning.[2]
