This day in baseball: All aboard the “Ryan Express”

Nolan Ryan

On this day in 1973 in Kansas City, Angels pitcher Nolan Ryan threw his first no-hitter in a 3-0 victory over the Royals.  It would be the first of seven no-hitters that Ryan would throw over the course of his career — a Major League record.  His second no-no would come only two months later against the Tigers in Detroit.

    there must be an explanation why the mets, astros, and angels all let ryan express move on during an era when many players stayed with the same team for their entire season?
