Nolan Ryan Hospitalized, Resting Comfortably

Nolan Ryan has been hospitalized with what is believed to be a recurrence of a previous heart condition, according to ESPN Dallas. According to the report, Ryan experienced the discomfort sometime on Sunday morning and will have tests run on Monday. Ryan is said to be resting comfortably in the hospital, which is certainly good news.

Per ESPN Dallas, Ryan was supposed to join the team in Anaheim and even throw out the first pitch on Tuesday:

Ryan was scheduled to join the team in Anaheim for a three-game series starting Tuesday. He was expected to throw out the first pitch that night as part of the Angels' Hall of Fame inductions, which this year include the late Gene Autry, the original owner of the team. Ryan was inducted into the club's Hall of Fame in 1992 and was to accept his Hall of Fame ring as well.

Hopefully all the tests come back with positive news for Ryan and he'll be at full strength quickly.
