Synopsis

Nolan Ryan's numbers tell a story, but numbers alone do not capturehis essence. Flashpoints have emblazoned him onto our subconscious: like pitching with his jerseycovered in blood. Running a cattle ranch during the off-season. The iconic brawl where Ryan wallopedthe 20 years younger Robin Ventura. Despite mythical moments and statistical brilliance, Ryan's careeris a study in extremes. Not only does he hold the record for most walks and most wild pitches, but hehas also given up the most grand-slams and the most stolen bases. Many of today's baseball analysts donot consider him to be among the greats, but with all this in mind, where does Ryan fit in the ever-evolving game of baseball? This event includes an exclusive Q&A with Nolan Ryan and the filmmakers from the SXSW worldpremiere.
