Reid Ryan, the son of Hall-of-Famer Nolan Ryan, will become the Houston Astros' next president, according to an MLB.com report.
The job became available Monday when George Postolos resigned. Ryan will be introduced at a Friday news conference.
Ryan, 41, is the current president and CEO of Ryan Sanders Baseball, Inc., and runs the Triple-A Round Rock Express, near Austin, and the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks. He also serves on the board of trustees for Minor League Baseball and the executive committee of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League.
His famous father is currently the CEO of the rival Texas Rangers, and owns Ryan Sanders Baseball with businessman Don Sanders. As a player, Nolan Ryan spent nine seasons with his hometown Astros, before leaving for the Rangers as a free agent in 1989.
He became the Rangers' team president in 2008 before being part of the group that bought the team during the 2010 season.
