"Our family was able to get into baseball ownership in 1998 because of the support of the people of Round Rock," Reid Ryan said. "More than a decade later, it is hard to believe that Nolan Ryan is the owner of Double-A, Triple-A and Major League teams. This is a reunion for Ryan Sanders Baseball, and it allows our families and baseball fans to continue what we started here in Round Rock in 1998."

"We're happy to bring the Express and the Round Rock community into the Rangers family," Rangers Owner and President Nolan Ryan said. "Things are headed in the right direction in Arlington, and the relationship with our minor league affiliates is a big part of that. Having our two highest affiliates in Texas is a positive."

 "The Rangers are excited about the new relationship with Round Rock, the Ryan family, and all the great people with the Express," Rangers Assistant General Manager Thad Levine said. "Our scouting and player development staffs have done an outstanding job at providing young talent to the Rangers organization. We look forward to having those players continue their journey to the big leagues at The Dell Diamond."
