The Nolan Ryan Foundation
There are actually two statues of Nolan Ryan in Alvin, Texas. One is in front of the City Hall. The one in the picture at the left is in front of the Nolan Ryan Center on the Campus of Alvin Community College. The Center is home to the college's Department of Continuing Education, a couple of classrooms, a large meeting room, offices, and the Nolan Ryan Foundation, which includes the Nolan Ryan Museum. It's not the Baseball Hall of Fame, but it's a great exhibit nevertheless, at least if you're a fan of Nolan Ryan. It has videos, uniforms, baseballs, bats, all that great stuff. There are a few more photos of the building and grounds here. The next time you're in Alvin, check it out. For that matter, give me a call, and I'll go with you.
