Houston, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - The Houston Astros named Nolan Ryan the club's executive advisor on Tuesday.

The Hall of Fame hurler spent nine of his record 27 seasons in the majors with Houston.

Ryan will primarily serve as an advisor to his son and president of business operations Reid Ryan, Astros owner and chairman Jim Crane and general manager Jeff Luhnow.

"The opportunity to work with my father is very special," Reid Ryan said. "He's had success in baseball on many levels and will be a great addition to our organization. He will be an extremely valuable asset to us."

Nolan Ryan served as chief executive officer of the Texas Rangers from 2008 until retiring on Oct. 31, 2013.

"We're extremely pleased to have Nolan as part of our organization," Crane commented. "We will use his experience, expertise and knowledge to improve the Astros in all areas. He will be an integral part of our management team. Nolan wants to be a part of our success moving forward."

Upon retiring as a player in 1993, Nolan Ryan joined the Rangers front office before returning to the Astros as a special assistant to the general manager in 2004 where he remained until 2008.

"I'm very excited to be back with the Astros," Nolan Ryan commented. "I'm happy to assist Jim, Jeff and Reid in any way I can. The Astros have a solid foundation with a strong farm system. I think the future is bright for Houston and I'm looking forward to my involvement."
