Absolutely love this first pitch from Nolan Ryan last night in Houston. Look at what he did here. Right into the invisible hitter’s shoulder. Just like the old days. Move you right off the plate. Make you think about crowding the plate and taking away the inside of the strike zone from the hall of famer. Making Craig Biggio work.

It also looks like Nolan opened up his hips a little early. Rusty? Of course. He hasn’t pitched since 1993 when he made $3,757,000 from the Rangers

Here’s a nugget to drop on your buddies at the bar tonight: Nolan’s first salary in 1966 with the Mets was $3,600 for an entire year. He was 19.
