Texas Rangers

Service time in years & days (through 2015 season).

A group led by Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan won control of the Rangers in August, 2010, at auction in U.S. Bankruptcy Court with a bid of $593M, including $385M in cash and $208M in assumed liabilities. The principal investors in the group were Bob Simpson and Ray Davis. The group bought out Greenberg’s minority stake in March, 2011, with Greenberg relinquishing his role of CEO and managing partner. Ryan resigned as CEO after the 2013 season. Former owner Tom Hicks purchased the club for $250M in 1998.

Forbes magazine valued the club at $1.23 billion in March, 2016.
