On August 4 1993, Hall of Famer pitcher Nolan Ryan's Rangers faced off against Robin Ventura and the Chicago White Sox. During the game, Ryan came up and in with a 96 mph fastball and hit Ventura. Uh-boy... In a heat-of-the-moment decision, an incensed Ventura dropped his bat and charged the mound. In a scene captured by TV cameras and replayed to millions, the 46-year-old Ryan (20 years Ventura's senior), put Robin in a headlock and started to pound him mercilessly, delivering six consecutive uppercuts to Ventura's head. It was a spectacle that would enhance Ryan's legend as one of the toughest pitchers and fiercest competitors to have ever played the game. And one of the most successful. When Ryan threw his final pitch on September 22, 1993, he concluded a 27-year major league career in which he had 5,714 strikeouts and an amazing seven no-hitters, the highest totals of any player in history. He also won 324 games while playing longer than anyone in major league history. This awesome 16x20 photograph of Ryan's legendary beatdown is hand-signed by Nolan and SGA Quality Framed in black wood, UV-protective glass (very important for signature protection!), double matting and "Don't Mess with Texas!"
