Nolan Ryan: Strikeout King

I came across these videos on YouTube.  I owned this VHS as a kid.  Nolan Ryan is one of the first non Rangers baseball players I remember hearing about back when he was with the Astros.  When I was introduced to baseball he and Babe Ruth were mentioned hand in hand as "these are the greatest players of all time".  Except you could still watch Nolan!

When he came to the Rangers it was the biggest thing ever in my young baseball life.  His time with the Rangers was very neat and was the foundation for most of my best baseball memories as a kid (and thanks to Jon Daniels I have a lot more new ones as an adult!).

The age range on this site goes from teenager to old fogey... but for those of you that don't remember Nolan's actual playing days or haven't seen this video... watch it.  Watch every minute and savor it.  He was something special as a player.

For those that do remember Nolan as a Ranger (or before)... you've probably already seen it, but it's fun to watch again. :)
