The Kansas City Royals

Patrick Mahomes, the reigning NFL MVP, is a part-owner of the Kansas City Royals. He became a minority shareholder of the team in 2019 and has been a fan of the Royals since he was a child. Mahomes is the first active NFL player to become an owner of a Major League Baseball team.

The Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers are an American professional baseball team based in Arlington, Texas, located in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Rangers franchise competes in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division. Since 1994, the Rangers have played their home games at Globe Life Field in Arlington. The team’s name is borrowed from the famous law enforcement agency of the same name.

The franchise was established as the Washington Senators, an expansion team awarded to Washington, D.C., in January 1961. The new Senators played their home games at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium, and quickly became a power in the AL East, winning seven consecutive division championships from 1969 to 1975 behind star players such as right fielder Frank Howard and left fielder Rusty Staub. After relocating to Arlington in 1972, the team changed its name to the Texas Rangers and entered a period of decline; they finished last in their division every year from 1974 to 1993. Alex Rodriguez, Iván Rodríguez, Juan González, and Hank Blalock were among the most successful Rangers during this time period; A-Rod would go on to win three MVP Awards and establish himself as one of baseball’s biggest stars while with the team from 2001–03.

In 1994, new owner Tom Hicks purchased the team and led them to their first postseason appearance since 1988; that same year marked shortstop Alex Rodriguez’s MLB debut. Hicks then appointed Doug Melvin as general manager; Melvin assembled a young core group of players that he acquired via trade or signed as free agents – among them Josh Hamilton, Michael Young, Mark Teixeira, Curt Schilling – who would lead the Rangersto several successful seasons between 2001 and 2010. In addition John Blake was named pitching coach for what would become one of baseball’s most dominant pitching staffs: eventual Hall-of-Famers Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnsonwere joined by Kevin Brownand Darren Oliverto give Texas four pitchers who each won 16 or more games in a season between 1991 and 1992; by 2001 those four had been replaced by Zimmermann(18 wins), Ryan (17 wins), Oliver (16 wins), but only after being joined by All-Star starter Kenny Rogers(17 wins). Three years later Mike Maddoxjoined them (16 wins) making it five pitchers with 16+ win seasons during that stretch for Texas pitchers; Rogers would also win 18 games in 2005as well as posting a perfect game against California later that season. Over this timespan Ryan won 254 games for Texas(5th all time for franchise history), while Johnson won 173(11th); Oliver won 81(22nd); Brown 65(29th) giving Texas 4 starting pitchers with 250+ career victories while with club: Rogers has 155wins (3rd), while Darren McCarthyhas so far picked up 93wins (9th).
