Nolan Ryan Staying with the Texas Rangers
A story that became the source of drama for Texas Rangers fans has been resolved.
Rangers CEO and former Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan has agreed to stay with the Rangers according to a press release from the organization Wednesday afternoon.
“After productive discussions the last several weeks with Ray Davis and Bob Simpson about the structure of our organization, together we are moving forward,” Ryan said in the release.
“In my role as CEO, I am focused on working closely with ownership and with Jon Daniels and Rick George to build on the success of the past five years and to bring a championship to Arlington.”
Ryan’s role with the club came in question when media in Dallas/Fort Worth started reporting of a power struggle in the club with Jon Daniels given more responsibility within the Rangers organization.
“We’ve had meaningful conversations with Nolan Ryan over the past several weeks and are pleased that our focus is now on working together to win a championship for our fans. Over the years Nolan has made extraordinary contributions to the Texas Rangers organization, both on and off the field, including providing valuable guidance to Jon Daniels and Rick George,” according to Ray Davis and Bob Simpson, co-Chairmen of the Texas Rangers.
The Rangers lost on Wednesday to the Tampa Bay Rays 2-0 on a dreary day delayed by the rain in Arlington.
