Astros' Reid Ryan Knocks It Out Of The Park At Dugout Dialogue


Houston Astros President Reid Ryan knocked it out of the park at PCA-Houston's Dugout Dialogue, August 2 at Studio 809 in Downtown Houston.

In discussion with Alyson Footer – National Correspondent for and a member of PCA-Houston's Women’s Leadership Council – Ryan shared these insights:

  • “You’re playing sports to prepare you for life, and it teaches you life lessons that most people learn the hard way in the real world, it also teaches how to work with others.”
  • “Three Core Values of the Houston Astros - Trust, Integrity, Excellence.”
  • “Every one of you that are coaching, remember the greatest measure of all of us, is the impact we have on other people’s lives.”

Other highlights of the event included PCA-Houston Board member Mike Dotson sharing a personal story about how sports have impacted his life.

There were quite a few people that helping make this evening great for all of us. Thanks also to our Table Sponsors -- Sandy & Bill Bryan, Kimberly & David Sterling, Dr. Jimmy Disch (Board Chair), Jason Chavez, and Farmers Insurance.

We also enjoyed tremendous support from PCA-Houston Board members in attendance – LaToya Glenn, Andres Guerra, Sarah E Trepagnier, Tiffany Lewis, Ron Stinebaugh, and PCA Director of Field Operations Ben Rose.

Thanks again to Reid Ryan and Alyson Footer for their time and insight. The Houston Astros embrace the spirit of The PCA Way, and it shows with the enthusiasm of everyone in the organization from the players to the front office.
