Cincinnati Reds

Service time in years & days (through 2014 season).
A group led by Robert Castellini purchased controlling interest (about 70 percent) in the Reds in November, 2005. The purchase was based on an enterprise value of the team of about $270M. Carl Lindner, who retains a minority ownership stake, had purchased the Reds in 1999 for $183M.

Forbes magazine valued the club at $885M in March, 2015. Bloomberg valued the club at $680M in October, 2013.
