The Texas Rangers have announced a formal partnership with Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef. Nolan Ryan knows baseball and he knows beef, I’ve been told. The Rangers team president’s beef company will be providing hot dogs for the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington beginning in the 2013 season. Ryan, if you did not know, is a beef man. I would imagine that Ryan probably refers to hot dogs as “cow sticks”.

More from Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef:

Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef has been selected as the exclusive hot dog and official beef provider for the Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas. Beginning with the 2013 season, fans will be served all beef hot dogs at the ballpark’s food service sites.

As the Official Hot Dog and the Official Beef of the Texas Rangers, Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef will expand its existing presence at the Ballpark by providing top quality meat products at restaurant venues, concession stands, hawker boxes and grill carts throughout the park. Additionally, Nolan Ryan Beef will nowsponsor the ever-popular $1 Hot Dog Night promotion held on select Wednesday home games.

“Few things are as synonymous with baseball as hot dogs, and we’re proud to elevate that experience for Texas Rangers Baseball fans by adding our Hickory Smoked Beef Franks to the menu line-up,” said Charlie Bradbury, president and CEO of Nolan Ryan Beef. “This is a great opportunity for our business and ranching partners as it will increase awareness of our brand in the baseball community.”

The Hickory Smoked Beef Franks contain no gluten, soy or MSG. Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef is hand selected by trained experts and only about 60 percent of cattle receive endorsement as Nolan Ryan Beef.

The partnership also means a return of the The Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Texas Beef 10K StrikeOut! fan promotion, which launched during the 2012 season. Each time the Rangers successfully strike out their opponent 10 times within a home game, one lucky row of fans in the stadium will win $50 worth of Nolan Ryan’s All-Natural Beef.

Nolan Ryan is the cow god. You will eat his all-natural beef and you will like it. Please attend Texas Rangers games for your chance to win $50 worth of Nolan Ryan’s beef.
