Baseball fans always knew Nolan Ryan could bring the heat for the Texas Rangers.

This upcoming season, more than ever, the team president is bringing the beef at Rangers Ballpark. And the dogs.

That’s because his company — Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef — has been selected as the exclusive hot dog and beef provider at Rangers Ballpark.

Ryan, who can normally be found sitting next the Texas dugout during games, will have a huge presence around the park. Restaurants, concession stands, hawker boxes and grill carts will all be carrying his product during games.

And more importantly, the always popular Dollar Dog Wednesday games will provide fans with all the Nolan Ryan dogs they can handle, and in some cases, probably too many.

And Ryan’s dogs aren’t your garden-variety hot dog either. We’re talking hickory smoked beef franks without any gluten, soy or MSG.

If that wasn’t enough, in every home game that the Rangers strike out at least 10 opponents, a row of fans win $50 worth of Nolan Ryan’s beef products.
