    Nolan Ryan hospitalized

    Always one of my favorite players. This may be nothing, hard to say at this point.

    ROUND ROCK, Texas Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan was hospitalized Friday, but his son Reid said it was not an emergency and he is good condition.

    Nolan Ryan, 59, checked into Round Rock Medical Center for treatment of recurring symptoms of a pre-existing medical condition, Reid Ryan said. Reid Ryan declined to specify the condition but said it was discovered when his father had double-bypass heart surgery in 2000.

    "He takes medication for it," Reid Ryan said. "From time to time, he has episodes that require him to get checked out when he has pain or something. He's feeling good. This is more about taking precautions."

    A spokesman for the Round Rock Express, one of the minor league teams Nolan Ryan owns, said he was to be transferred to Houston for further evaluation.

    In a statement released by the team, Nolan Ryan said he expects to participate in next week's Nolan Ryan Elite Pitching Camp, which starts Monday in Houston.

    Ryan had 5,714 career strikeouts and seven no-hitters in 27 years with the New York Mets, the California Angels, the Houston Astros and the Texas Rangers. He retired in 1993 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999.

    Ryan is a majority owner of the Round Rock Express and Corpus Christi Hooks, Triple-A and Double-A affiliates of the Houston Astros.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Reading that article makes me feel old for some reson. He is probably my all time fav pitcher. One thing seemed odd in article though - he retired in 93 and went to hall in 09? 6 years?

    Does that mean he was eligible for vote in 98 after offciially retiring in 94 and then was officialy inducted in 99? I thought it was 4 years to be eligible and he had to be first ballot so im trying to figure out how 93-99 equals 4 years ?

    Nolan Ryan was my favorite pitcher that i wish could have pitched for the big Red Machine... A few years ago.. i don t have the source, but a media type asked him if there was one team he wished he could have pitched for.. he awnsered "The Big Red machine".. can you imagine how many more victories he could have had??

    i named my youngest son Nolan Ryan!

    Hoping he gets better and has a long happy life.

    That's what I want to name my first son. Now I just have to find a woman who'll let me.
