ARLINGTON, Texas-- Nolan Ryan is retiring after six seasons as CEO of the Texas Rangers.

The 66-year-old Ryan said Thursday this is the right time for him step down from his job overseeing the Rangers organization. He will retire at the end of this month.

I am extremely proud of what this organization has accomplished, Ryan said. 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 and we have been able to upgrade the ballpark and enhance the in-game experience to reward that loyalty.
