Since we created Ryan Sanders Baseball in 1998, it has evolved into one of the premier sports and entertainment operators, and ownership groups. We initially founded the Round Rock Express (2000) and Corpus Christi Hooks (2005), as well as built new home stadiums for each team with Dell Diamond and Whataburger Field, respectively. In order to capitalize on our relationships and expertise in the hospitality and turf services industries, we expanded our company in 2013 to include Ryan Sanders Sports Services; or RS3 for short. Since that time, we have moved the Nolan Ryan Foundation, the important charitable portion of our group, to our corporate headquarters in Round Rock as well as added a youth baseball development program to our ever-growing team.
We build partnerships and make memories.
The same drive, passion and pursuit of excellence that earned him the honor of a Hall of Fame Major League Baseball career is the foundation on which Nolan Ryan has built his businesses. Today, the Ryan brand that stands for quality and distinction has subsequently grown into an enterprise model in which Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment was established.
The Ryan-Sanders partnership formed over 35 years ago with the collaboration between Ryan and Houston financier as well as former Astros minority owner, Don Sanders. Sanders leads one of the most successful wealth management firms in the country with 38 offices nationwide managing over $18 billion in assets. The powerhouse battery that is the Ryan-Sanders partnership is committed to building deep-rooted business foundations as well carrying out its mission with class and integrity at the forefront.
