Sitting in a quiet corner of the bustling Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, Gary Nolan wonders aloud if his 10-year career as a major league pitcher wasn't itself a mirage. He is 44 now, a year younger than Nolan Ryan. But while Ryan is still on the hill for the Texas Rangers, Nolan has been on the floor of the casino industry for the last 15 years. After being released by the California Angels in 1978, Nolan, his wife and four children moved to Vegas, where Nolan took a job dealing blackjack at the Golden Nugget Hotel. Nolan has smoothly shifted from pitcher to pitchman.
