Nolan Ryan net worth: Nolan Ryan is an American professional baseball player who has an estimated net worth of $60 million dollars. Nolan Ryan was a pitcher for the New York Mets, the California Angels, the Houston Astros, and the Texas Rangers. He is often compared to the Dodgers' Sandy Koufax because Ryan broke two of Koufax's records for most no-hitters and the single-season strikeout mark. Ryan was an eight time All-Star selection and is the only pitcher to have pitched seven "no hitters". He was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999 in his first year of eligibility with 98.9% of the vote. His post-retirement business interests include ownership of two minor league teams: the Corpus Christi Hooks, which play in the Class AA Texas League, and the Round Rock Express, a Class AAA team in the Pacific Coast League. Both teams were affiliates of the Houston Astros, where Ryan also served as a special assistant to the general manager until selling his interest in the team in the off-season between 2004 and 2005. He became President of the Texas Rangers in 2008. Ryan has co-written six books and was the majority owner and chairman of Express Bank of Alvin before he sold his interest in 2005. He owns a restaurant in Three Rivers, Texas and has served on the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission. He also appeared as a spokesman for Advil for several years as well as appearing in various commercials in the Texas market. Ryan was born and raised in Texas as the youngest of six children. He married his Alvin High School sweetheart, Ruth Holdorff, in 1967 and the couple had three children, Reid, Reese, and Wendy. Reid and Reese were both pitchers for the TCU Horned Frogs, and Reid also pitched briefly in the minor leagues. Nolan is considered a legend in Texas baseball, and is currently an executive advisor for the Houston Astros. In 2013, his son, Reid, was announced as the President of Business Operations with the team and Reid works alongside Owner, Jim Crane, and General Manager, Jeff Luhnow. For Ryan, this marks a return to a Houston organization where he spent nine years as a pitcher and another four years under a personal services contract before he was allowed to leave to take over as president of the Rangers in 2008 for then-owner, Tom Hicks. Nolan Ryan currently resides in the Cimarron Hills community in Georgetown, a suburb of Austin.
