October 6th, 1991
For years, I had this ticket stub sitting around on my shelves in my room back in Burleson.  I remember going
with Dad, but I don't remember who else we went with.  I do reme
mber him telling me that we were going to see
Nolan Ryan pitch.  Nolan Ryan was anything you say about him, a legend, an unbelievable pitcher - this game
was just more of the same from him.  I remember walking down pretty close to where he was warming up there
on the first base line there in Arlington Stadium.  I guess they didn't have bullpens there.  I just stood there in the
aisle and watched him throw over and over again.  I took my glove to this game because we were not very far
from the field on the first base side.  One of my earliest memories of a Rangers game,  I'll admit I don't
remember too much about the actual game - but its looks like an exciting one, as the Rangers took care of
McGwire, Canseco, Tony LaRussa and other mythical baseball card legends in walkoff style.
