ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Nolan Ryan is retiring after six years of serving as CEO of the Texas Rangers.
Ryan said in a statement Thursday that this is the right time for him step down from his job overseeing the Rangers organization. He will retire at the end of this month.
The Hall of Fame pitcher became the 10th president of the Rangers in February 2008 and became chief executive officer three years later.
In that span, Texas has made its only two World Series appearances. The Rangers have averaged more than 90 wins the past five seasons.
