ARLINGTON, TX - MAY 19: Miguel Cabrera #24 of the Detroit Tigers watches the video board replay of his home run in the fifth inning against the Texas Rangers at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington on May 19, 2013 in Arlington, Texas.
My dad grew up playing baseball so he got me into it ... Being from Arlington, we’ve always been big Texas Rangers fans. It was just expected that I was going to play baseball. Baseball was my favorite and tennis was pretty tiring. It’s a ton of traveling and long practices every day.
We've had meaningful conversations with Nolan Ryan over the past several weeks and are pleased that our focus is now on working together to win a championship for our fans ... Over the years Nolan has made extraordinary contributions to the Texas Rangers organization, both on and off the field, including providing valuable guidance to Jon Daniels and Rick George. His leadership as our chief executive --- with both baseball and business operations reporting to him -- has been vital to our success and offers us a bright future.
He didn't have his best stuff, and (when) you don't have your best stuff and you keep your team in the ballgame, I think you're out there pitching well ... He walked guys, but he pitched around that. We got double plays. The guys he walked didn't score on us.More quotes »
