ARLINGTON, TEXAS (AP) - Add one more win for Big Tex.
“Did I ever think I’d be in a position to be an owner of a major league team?” the Hall of Fame pitcher said, repeating the question. “Not at all. But I never thought I’d throw seven no-hitters, either.”
“It’s funny how dates coincide,” Ryan said with a chuckle.
Just as Ryan and sports attorney Chuck Greenberg were submitting their final bid in bankruptcy court in Fort Worth, Michael Young was hitting a grand slam to seal the AL West-leading Rangers‘ 11-6 win at Seattle.
“I hope that was omen,” Ryan said.
“It was a long night, but a very productive night,” Ryan said.
Someone offered Ryan a bottle of champagne after this victory, but the 63-year-old former ace was drained.
“I had a small sip of it, but I was so tired I wanted to go home,” he said.
Major League Baseball could formally approve the sale next week.View Entire Story
