Rangers CEO and President Nolan Ryan was hospitalized Sunday with "discomfort" that is believed to be a recurrence of a heart condition that has previously bothered him, the team announced via press release Monday morning. Fortunately, Ryan is "resting comfortably" and is expecting to be released from the hospital within the next few days.

Later on Monday, the Rangers sent out a release updating Ryan's condition saying, "the test results indicated no new developments with this recurrence of Mr. Ryan’s heart condition. That condition will continue to be treated with medication."

Ryan, 64, is a Hall of Famer who holds the all-time record for career strikeouts (5,714) and no-hitters (seven). He pitched for the Rangers for five years and threw his sixth and seventh no-hitters in a Rangers uniform. He's now part of the braintrust that helped get Texas to its first World Series in franchise history last season.

Ryan also pitched for the Mets, Angels and Astros in his 27-year career and was an eight-time All-Star.

Youknowmyname - Ryan doesn't need your support or respect until you get out of your parent's basement and get a real job...  trolling on the internet in your tighty whitey's doesn't count as a job.

The Express is a class act and always has been - We wish you a speedy recovery Nolan!

Our Rangers need you!!

Ryan regularly threw 100+ MPH after the age of 40 and threw two no-hitters after his 40th birthday.  This is no different than Bonds becoming a home run monster after the age of 35.  Ryan was always a power pitcher, but started to slow down a bit in the mid-80's.  There is no other explanation as to how he picked up the pace again.  He started it all!  He passed it on to Clemens who had a similar career, but got caught.  I wish him a speedy recovery as a human being, but offer no respect as a ballplayer.

You are out of your mind. Nolan was a straight and narrow workhorse, by the book. Troll elsewhere.
