It was the evening of July 31st, 1990, Channel 11 in DFW and we were all watching Nolan Ryan go for # 300!
Where did the years go? Nolan Ryan won # 300 on his second try in Milwaukee:
"Nolan Ryan made the final payment Tuesday night on a retirement home for his baseball legacy.To a resume that already included major league records for no-hitters (six) and strikeouts (5,219), Ryan added membership in the 300-victory club in the Rangers' 11-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers at County Stadium.Snubbed once after a struggle against the New York Yankees at Arlington Stadium six nights earlier, Ryan made good on his second opportunity, becoming the 20th pitcher to win 300. He had won No. 299 on July 20, allowing one run in six innings against Detroit."I'm relieved it's over with," he said. "The last 15 days, emotionally, have been the toughest 15 days I've gone through. I really wanted to get it done (Tuesday night). I didn't want this to be an ongoing deal."
