Nolan Ryan treated for heart condition, released from hospital

Jul 19, 2011, 1:20 PM EDT


Nolan Ryan has been released from a Houston hospital after spending two days being treated for the recurrence of a heart condition.

According to Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas tests revealed no new problems and the 64-year-old Hall of Famer will continue to be treated with medication.

Ryan, who had double bypass surgery in 2000, experienced chest pains Monday morning.

He’s expected to resume his duties as Rangers president later this week, but won’t be on hand to throw out the first pitch in Anaheim tonight as part of the Angels’ ceremony inducting Gene Autry into the team Hall of Fame.

    God bless Nolan Ryan. Many more years of critique when it comes to starting pitchers finishing games.

    You know, I was set to write a joke about GM John Daniels causing the heart attack with some weird fantasy trade involving Michael Young and then having Nolan scolding him saying “We’re not like that OTHER team in Texas” but… don’t have the heart to write a full skit.

    Get well Nolan! And if at anytime your GM makes questionable suggestions put him in your trademark head-lock!
