In case you still have not gotten over the fact that former Texas Rangers great and former team president Nolan Ryan retired, let me give you some more former Texas Rangers great news. Jim Sundberg has announced that he will retire from his position as club executive, effective at the end of the season.
“While I am stepping away from a full-time role, I look forward to continuing my long association with the Texas Rangers organization,” said Sundberg according to texasrnagers.com. “Being involved in the community has always held a special place for me, and I will remain involved in that capacity.”
Jim Sundberg has spent over 30 years with the Texas Rangers, and according to his quote above, he will continue to be involved with the organization. We all wish him well as he retires from his role with the club, but we see him go with sadness. It appears that the exit of former Texas Rangers greats continue with the exit of Sundberg.
Just to be clear, I personally don’t believe that he is leaving because he is angry or anything, I think he feels that he is ready to retire. It will be interesting to see who takes his place in the organization.
