Nolan Ryan Still an Inspiring Baseball Success Story

Just keep pitching those fast balls. In other words, show up, take risks, and success will follow.

Read in the paper recently that Nolan Ryan and his investor group won their bid to buy the Texas Rangers from its beleaguered and bankrupt owner. While Ryan’s ownership is both a fascinating baseball and business story, what struck me in reading about it was what he told reporters after the deal was sealed.  

“Did I ever think I’d be in a position to be in an ownership group of a Major League Baseball franchise? No,” said the Hall of Famer pitcher. “But I never thought I’d throw seven no-hitters, either.”  

The personal growth lesson? Just keep pitching those fast balls. In other words, show up, take risks, do your best, and things may turn out beyond your wildest dreams.
