The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas recently announced Nolan Ryan as Keynote Speaker for the YMCA Key Leaders Luncheon to be held September 25, 2012 at the Fairmont Hotel.

Baseball’s all-time strikeout leader will share his wisdom on how to “strikeout” the competition, with a multi-faceted look to business as a cattleman, team owner and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Ryan currently serves as CEO & President of the Texas Rangers and is part of the team’s ownership group, Rangers Baseball Express, which completed its purchase of the franchise on August 12, 2010. He oversees all baseball and business operations for the franchise.

Ryan’s pedigree as one of the greatest pitchers in major league history has served as a positive influence as the Rangers develop and refine their pitching philosophies, which incorporate Ryan’s trademarks of conditioning, hard work, good mechanics, focus, and mental toughness.

Ryan will lead a dialogue with, Chuck Morgan Senior Vice President of Ball Park Entertainment for the Texas Rangers. Chuck Morgan, one of the most recognizable public address voices in the game, and Ryan’s conversation will serve as a home run for business insiders and baseball fans alike.
