STARS OWNER TOM HICKS PURSUING OWNERSHIP OF MLB RANGERS
Published January 6, 1998
A spokesperson for Stars Owner Tom Hicks confirmed yesterday that Hicks "is leading an investors group that has been negotiating for several months to purchase" the MLB Rangers, according to Ken Daley of the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Rangers President Tom Schieffer: "Traditionally, we have never discussed anybody's interest, and we're not going to start now." Daley reports that Hicks "has previously mentioned his interest in the Rangers, and in pairing the local baseball and hockey franchises in an attractive, year- round broadcast package." The Rangers' ownership group now has 28 members, but percentages of ownership by individual members are not made public (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 1/6).
