Texas Rangers president and CEO Nolan Ryan was released from the hospital in Houston Tuesday morning. He had been there since Sunday morning with some discomfort in his chest, which was related to a previous heart condition. Ryan underwent tests Monday, which -- per a Rangers press release -- "indicated no new developments with this recurrence of Mr. Ryan’s heart condition. That condition will continue to be treated with medication."

The Hall of Famer is expected to rest at his home for a few days until returning to his duties with the ballclub.

Ryan, 64, holds the all-time record for career strikeouts (5,714) and no-hitters (seven). He pitched for the Rangers for five years and threw his sixth and seventh no-hitters in a Rangers uniform. He's now part of the braintrust that helped get Texas to its first World Series in franchise history last season.

He also pitched for the Mets, Angels and Astros in his 27-year career and was an eight-time All-Star.

 Good to see the health issue is ok.  He's the best pitcher to chuck a ball in my mind.  I dare you to name one other pitcher, who was a power pitcher in 4 differant decades.  Not a good pitcher, because some change there style, but a power pitcher through out.  I know that there isn't one, Randy Johnson may have got into 3 decades, I'm not sure, but he would be the only one close.

Glad to hear that Mr. Ryan is ok.  He is arguably one of the greatest pitchers of all time.  I feel lucky I was able to watch him pitch during his career.
