Monday Is Greene County Partnership Night At Greeneville Astros Game; Nolan Ryan's Son To Be In Attendance

Originally published: 2013-07-27 00:15:36

GREENEVILLE - Reid Ryan, president of the Houston Astros organization and son of MLB Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, will be at Pioneer Park Monday to attend the Greeneville Astros' game against the Burlington.

First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.

Greeneville is Houston's Rookie League affiliate and currently leads the Appalachian League West Division standings. The local Astros are also in the midst of a 13-game winning streak heading into the weekend.

Monday's game will serve as Greene County Partnership Night at the ball park.

All Partnership members and their employees can purchase tickets for $2 each. They can be bought at the gate with a proof of employment, or an employer can purchase a block of tickets ahead of time by calling (423) 638-0411.

Greene County Partnership President/CEO Tom Ferguson said this was the perfect opportunity for the community to show how much they appreciate the Greeneville Astros.

Houston owner Jim Crane introduced Ryan as the organization's president back on May 17.

Ryan's father played for Houston from 1980-88. Nolan Ryan is currently the principal owner and CEO of the Astros' in-state rival, the Texas Rangers.

Nolan Ryan is most famous for his record seven no-hitters and his 5,714 career strikeouts, which also ranks first in baseball history. Amazingly enough, despite his accomplishments, he never won a Cy Young Award.

Reid Ryan, age 42, was drafted by the Texas Rangers out of Texas Christian University in the 17th round of the 1994 MLB Amateur Draft.

He played in the minors for two seasons.
