Nolan Ryan, the Hall of Famer known for his red-hot right arm, fiery personality and management savvy, is retiring as the chief executive officer of the Texas Rangers at the end of October, the team announced Thursday.

He had a few tough months in the front office. Last March, the Rangers stripped Ryan of his team president title, leading many to believe that he would leave the team. Many observers said he was being forced out.

Ryan served as Rangers president in 2008 before becoming chief executive officer in 2011. Ryan, who played for the Rangers from 1989 to 1993, threw a record seven no-hitters during his Major League career.

Business has been good the past couple of weeks at the Rangers Store in uptown Dallas. Brad Linum came during his lunch break to buy a birthday gift for his girlfriend: an Ian Kinsler jersey. And he wanted to see what "new" Rangers stuff is in the pipeline.

Dallas, TX – Game Five of the World Series tonight is the final home game for the Texas Rangers.

Last night, the Rangers beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 behind some brilliant pitching from left-hander Derek Holland. Tonight, it's Ranger C.J. Wilson on the mound against the Cardinals' Chris Carpenter.

Mac Engle with the Fort Worth Star Telegram says that matchup favors St. Louis.

The Rangers bring the World Series home to Arlington Saturday for Game Three with the St. Louis Cardinals. Rangers fans are eager for a "home" win. But, as KERA's BJ Austin reports it'll take more than cheering in the stands. It'll take "physics" on the field.
