HOUSTON -- In less than five years, Astros president of business operations Reid Ryan has gone from consoling a fan base worried about a
lack of a television Lance McCullers Youth Jersey deal and the direction of the team to planning World Series trophy
tours and helping to design championship rings.

It's been a challenging but fulfilling ride for Ryan, the 46-year-old
son of Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan and former Astros batboy. The
Astros, who won Luke Gregerson Youth Jersey their first championship by beating the Dodgers in the World Series,
are on top of the baseball world, and Ryan couldn't be happier ... or
busier.

"It's been crazy," he said. "Going to the Winter Meetings, I couldn't go
two steps without someone either congratulating us or asking me for a
job. It's been wild. The excitement around town, people are very joyful
with the win. I think Astros Nation is very prideful, so I'm seeing gear
everywhere. I was at the airport the other day, and everybody's got
hats and shorts on still. I think it's still a feeling of pride in this
community."
Considering the Astros Marwin Gonzalez Youth Jersey played an extra month this year -- they beat the Dodgers in Game 7 on
Nov. 1 -- the offseason has flown by. That's especially true when you
take into account how busy the Astros have been celebrating their World
Series win. Ryan is planning a Commissioner's Trophy tour around Houston
for January, with Spring Training coming closely behind.

"Here we were in November wrapping up, and we're now less than 50 days
to Spring Training -- something like that -- in the middle of February,"
he said. "It was just the amount of things from the World Series that
occupied us through November, and we looked up and it was December and
we're sitting here going, 'Holy cow, we've got 30 days until it's 2018.'
The front office, the team, they've turned the page. We're onto 2018,
and this group of guys wants to have another great year next year, so I
think you're going to see a lot of passion out there on the field once
again."

It's impossible to go Max Stassi Youth Jersey around Houston and not see Astros merchandise on store shelves or being
worn by fans. That was a far cry from 2013, when the Astros lost 111
games and played before small crowds at Minute Maid Park and minuscule
television audiences. Ryan, who founded the Triple-A Round Rock Express
and Double-A Corpus Christi, was CEO of both Minor League clubs when
Astros owner Jim Crane hired him on May 17, 2013, to take over the
business operations in Houston.
