Nolan Ryan Released from Hospital in Houston

HOUSTON (AP) - Nolan Ryan has been released from a hospital and will rest at home for a few days before returning to work with the Texas Rangers.

The 64-year-old Ryan - a Hall of Fame pitcher and CEO of the AL West leaders - checked into a Houston hospital on Sunday after experiencing discomfort while at his home in Georgetown. Tests taken Monday showed no new problems related to a heart condition for which he already was being treated with medication. Doctors decided to keep treating him with medication, and sent him home Tuesday.

Ryan had a double-bypass operation in 2000 and has a family history of heart disease.

He had been scheduled to join the team Tuesday in Anaheim, Calif.

    Critics say the NFL's decision to force players to stand during the national anthem if on the field say the policy prioritizes the league's mainstream appeal over athletes.
