Player Biography
With a dominating fastball and an unsurpassed work ethic, Nolan Ryan’s career spanned four decades and culminated with 5,714 strikeouts. Ryan threw so hard – and could be so wild – that Reggie Jackson described the Texas native as “the only guy who could put fear in me. Not because he could get me out, but because he could kill me. You just hoped to mix in a walk so you could have a good night and go 0-for-3.” Often among the league leaders in strikeouts, Ryan won 324 games and pitched a major league record seven no-hitters, three more than any other hurler in history. In 2008, Ryan assumed the role of team president of the Texas Rangers.
