Nolan Ryan sitting with George W. Bush
By Richard Durrett
ARLINGTON, Texas -- One question on the minds of many Texas Rangers fans for today's opener at home: Would Nolan Ryan be in his usual seats in the owner's box by the Rangers dugout?
Well, he was there, enjoying the game between former president George W. Bush and the former first lady, Laura. Ryan's future with the club remains uncertain as the CEO has not publicly said whether he's staying with the team since it was announced that Jon Daniels had added the title of president of baseball operations and Rick George became president of business operations.
But Ryan was where he's been the past few seasons Friday, sitting in the front row to watch Derek Holland's start against the Angels. Will he be there all weekend and into next week? We'll see.
