"Don't get caught watching the paint dry"

Chitwood & Hobbs

Made in the U.S.A.

Texas Tough

September 8, 1990. Nolan Ryan took the mound to face the Kansas City Royals. After a 1-2-3 first inning, Bo Jackson led off the second with a line drive straight back towards the mound and into Ryan’s chin. The 43 year-old veteran pitcher recovered in time to throw out the speedy Bo. 

With his chin split open and blood streaming down, and his team 16.5 games out of the playoff hunt with 23 left to play, Ryan stepped back onto the mound to throw seven innings that day (one run, three hits, eight strikeouts), keeping the Rangers in the game until a Rafael Palmeiro walkoff double in the ninth.
