Nolan Ryan deemed Irrigation Show keynote speaker

August 29, 2013 -  By

From the dugout to businessman, baseball hall of famer Nolan Ryan will take his experience to the Irrigation Show and Education Conference in Austin, Texas as the keynote speaker for the General Session, held 8:45 a.m. Nov. 7.

Chuck Morgan, public address announcer and senior vice president of ballpark entertainment for the Texas Rangers Baseball Club, will share the stage to moderate a Q&A portion of the address.

With a 27-season career (1966–1993) and several notable Major League records to his name, Ryan boasts seven career no-hitters, 5,714 strikeouts and 12 one-hitters. After hanging up his glove in 1993, he went on to own two minor league baseball teams and is now CEO of the Texas Rangers.

In his address, Ryan will discuss how to take care of the customer, based on his commitment to customer satisfaction in his many business ventures. Since his arrival to the Rangers in 2010, the franchise has recommitted itself to enhancing the fan experience, establishing single season home attendance records in the last two years and surpassing the 3-million attendance mark for the first time in franchise history in 2012.

“I am incredibly excited to have Nolan Ryan as our keynote,” said Irrigation Association President Bob Dobson, CIC, CID, of Middletown Sprinkler Company. “Nolan Ryan is a nationally known personality and businessman who has a special connection with the folks in Texas. We are pleased to be able to have such a legend on our stage.”
