When it comes to helping put the necessary ingredients together to field a consistently successful baseball team, Nolan Ryan has proven to be up to the task.
Of course the Texas Rangers president and CEO will never share his best tips with the public in that regard, but he does intend on sharing his favorite recipes for putting together consistently tasty meals.
That's right, the all-time strikeout king and baseball Hall of Famer is putting together The Nolan Ryan Beef Cookbook according to a Little, Brown and Company press release on Monday. The cookbook will feature dozens of Ryan's favorite recipes , some dating all the way back to his childhood, with a focus on Texas-style BBQ and grilling, in addition to recipes for roasting, pan searing, scoring, braising, and deep-frying.
But don't worry baseball fans, it won't all be about food.
The 65-year-old Ryan also plans to work in a few baseball stories, from his years pitching for the New York Mets, California Angels and other teams to his current job as CEO and president of the Texas Rangers. His previous books include the memoirs "Miracle Man" and "Throwing Heat."
