RS3 Turf’s unparalleled baseball knowledge begins at the top with Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan and his son Reid Ryan at the helm. One of the most decorated pitchers in Major League Baseball history, Nolan compiled an illustrious 27-year career that included time with the New York Mets, California Angels, Texas Rangers and Houston Astros. He accumulated 324 career wins and set or eclipsed 51 Major League pitching records, including seven no-hitters and 5,714 career strikeouts. After stepping off the mound, Nolan stepped into the front office, joining Reid in founding Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment before spending time working in executive roles for both the Rangers and Astros.
Another baseball lifer, Reid served as a bat boy for the Astros while Nolan pitched in the Astrodome in the 1980s. Reid would return to the organization three decades later as Houston’s President of Business Operations. His time with the club included the best stretch of on-field success in franchise history as the Astros captured the 2017 World Series title as well as the American League pennant in 2019. He also played a significant role in opening Houston’s Spring Training facility in West Palm Beach, Florida and the Astros’ Class A affiliate in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Prior to joining the Astros, Reid founded both the Round Rock Express and Corpus Christi Hooks, building two of the most successful Minor League Baseball franchises from the ground up.
