Since President George W. Bush left office after completing his second term prior to the 2009 MLB season, he has been a frequent guest at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

And for parts of the past five seasons, he's had the end seat closest to the Rangers' dugout in the owner's box when he's come to games, watching with Hall of Famer and CEO Nolan Ryan.

Bush, who has retired to the Dallas area, said Ryan "brought a lot" to the Rangers during his tenure, praising him as a pitcher and a person.

"The Rangers will miss his presence -- and I will miss sitting next to my pal at the ballpark," Bush said in a statement sent by his office. "Laura and I wish Nolan and Ruth all the very best."
