DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - DALLAS, TX (KLTV) - Nolan Ryan will retire as the CEO of the Texas Rangers, effective October 31, according to WFAA in Dallas.

Ryan released the following statement on his Twitter account on Thursday:

"This is the right time for me to step down from my role of overseeing the Rangers organization. I am extremely proud of what this organization has accomplished. I am extremely proud of what this organization has accomplished. On the field we have enjoyed great success at the major league level. The fans have supported us in record numbers the last two years."
