(AP) Nolan Ryan is retiring from the Texas Rangers again, this time leaving his CEO role 20 years after ending his Hall of Fame career as a pitcher.


Ryan says the move closes a chapter of his life in baseball. He feels it's time to move on to other things.


In his opening statement at a news conference Thursday, Ryan made a reference to resigning.


Asked about the difference in the team saying he's retiring, Ryan paused and then said he won't be CEO of another major league team.


His son, Reid, was named president of the Houston Astros earlier this year.


Rangers co-chairman Ray Davis says the ownership group is disappointed with Ryan's decision but understands it. The 66-year-old Ryan is also selling his ownership stake in the team.
