Nolan Ryan, one of the most intimidating and successful pitchers in baseball history, is writing a cookbook. A beef cookbook, to be exact.
From the Associated Press:
The game's all-time strikeout king is also a longtime Texas rancher and has compiled dozens of his favorite recipes for ''The Nolan Ryan Beef Cookbook.'' Little, Brown and Co. announced Monday that the book is scheduled for May 2014.
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.''
The tally for Ryan now stands at three books, seven career no-hitters. We look forward to checking it out.
