Well, it didn't take long for departed Texas Rangers CEO and minority owner Nolan Ryan to return to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington after stepping away from the posts on Halloween.
The MLB Hall of Famer, who left the organization under what appeared to be a pretty dark cloud of butting heads and disagreements, will speak at UTA's First Pitch Fundraiser on Friday at the Capital One Club inside the ballpark beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The Mavericks baseball team will be honored and receive their 2013 WAC championship rings while also discussing the upcoming season, their first in the Sun Belt Conference.
Sponsorship packages are available for $2000, which includes eight passes to meet-and-photo opportunity with Ryan, a Ryan autographed jersey and Ryan autographed baseballs. For sponsorships, contact Craig Shaver at 817-272-9608 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets are $50 for adults and $25 for students, and available at UTATickets.com. Parking at Rangers Ballpark is available in Lot J and access to the Capital 1 Club will be through the Home Plate gate entrance.
