Son of a gun, he throws just like his dad. Well, not quite. But, then again, who in the world can throw a fastball like Nolan Ryan? "I'll never throw as hard as he does," Reid Ryan says without apology. Reid, a sophomore righthander at Texas Christian University, is strikingly similar to his father in many ways, both on and off the mound.

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- With a Texas Rangers logo emblazoned across his chest, Nolan Ryan stares intently toward home plate. From a much different angle. Too bad for the Rangers that Ryan is wearing a warmup jacket with slacks and sitting in the front row evaluating the team during a spring training game, rather than being in uniform on the mound intimidating another batter like he did in his heyday. Nearly two decades after first pitching for the Rangers, the 61-year-old Hall of Famer is back in a new role as team president.

Nolan Ryan says it's not animosity that has kept him from Anaheim. It's his hectic schedule. Ryan insists he's rooting strongly for his former team to win its first World Series. He has watched every game, has shared several postgame telephone chats with his equally excited children and wishes he could attend games in person. But he can't. He made previous commitments.

Nolan Ryan's son said his father was doing better and even took a brief walk Monday, but baseball's strikeout king was still expected to be hospitalized for a week after double bypass heart surgery at Austin, Texas. The 53-year-old Hall of Famer underwent two hours of emergency surgery Sunday at Austin Heart Hospital and was listed in stable condition Monday. Blood tests and an electrocardiogram showed Ryan did not have a heart attack.

Reid Ryan, 19, found out Tuesday night that pappy Nolan, 44, is still top gun in the Ryan family. Ryan, a freshman at the University of Texas, pitched two innings and trailed, 4-1, when he left the game as the Texas Rangers went on to a 12-5 victory. His father led, 5-3, after throwing 111 pitches in five innings. He gave up five hits, walked three and struck out seven. "I'm not happy with the way I pitched, but I have to put it in perspective of who I was pitching against," Reid said.

Reid Ryan, son of major league strikeout leader Nolan Ryan, is one of four high school baseball players who have chosen to attend the University of Texas. Ryan, a 6-foot, 170-pound right-hander, has an 86-m.p.h. fastball, a drop-off from the 98-m.p.h. fastball his 43-year-old father throws, but is said to have a good change-up and breaking pitches. "People expect you to be the same as your father," Reid Ryan said. "I don't think I'll ever be like my dad, but I try to copy him.

Was there any doubt? Reid Ryan, son of baseball's all-time strikeout leader, made his collegiate debut Tuesday for No. 6 Texas. Naturally, Nolan's kid struck out the first batter he faced. "It was exciting," the 19-year-old freshman said. "I've been itching, waiting to get in. It was neat." Ryan's first victim was a friend, Shayne Currin of Texas-Arlington. In the summer, Currin is a bullpen catcher for the Texas Rangers, the team Nolan pitches for.
