Nolan Ryan turns 63 years old today.
One of the most dominant and competitive pitchers that the game has even seen, Nolan Ryan was a player admired by many. His hard work and dedication to his craft made him a very well respected player with his teammates, peers, and fans.
For Mr. Ryan’s birthday I will continue the ’30-YOC’ trend of honoring him with a full day’s worth of posts. But I will throw in a little twist this time. You see, any time I think of Nolan Ryan, I think ‘No-Hitters’!!! Yes, he is a Hall of Famer. And a member of the 300 Wins Club. And he is the all-time leader in strikeouts. But for me, and I don’t think that I am alone with this, when his name is mentioned I go straight to his 7 incredible “No-No’s”.
So check back with me throughout the day. I will be celebrating each and every one of these great moments from Nolan Ryan’s career and baseball history!!
