In 1979, Nolan Ryan became the first million-dollar a year player when he signed a four-year free-agent contract with the Houston Astros for $4.5 million. The salary quadrupled what he had been making with the California Angels. On July 4th, 1979 Ryan recorded his 3,000th career strikeout. In 1981, Ryan threw his fifth no-hitter, breaking Koufax’s mark while becoming the third pitcher to throw a no-hitter in each league. That season, his 1.69 ERA won the National Laegue ERA title. In 1985, Ryan recorded his 4,000th career strikeout. In 1987, Ryan led the major leagues in both ERA (2.76) and strikeouts (270) at the age of 40. In nine seasons as a pitcher with the Astros, Ryan compiled a 106–94 record in 282 starts, a 3.13 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, with 796 walks and 1,866 strikeouts in 1,854 innings.
