Nolan Ryan to rejoin Astros as executive advisor

Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan has rejoined the Houston Astros as the team's executive advisor.

Ryan worked as a special assistant to the general manager in Houston from 2004 until he became president of the Texas Rangers in 2008. He added CEO to his title with the Rangers in 2011 and remained in that position until he stepped down in October.

Ryan will serve as an advisor to owner Jim Crane, general manager Jeff Luhnow and his son and president of business operations Reid Ryan.

The elder Ryan, who played for the Astros for nine seasons, is major league baseball's all-time strikeout leader and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1999. The team says Ryan will join the team at spring training in the next few weeks.
