Ray Davis Approved as New Controlling Owner of Texas Rangers

View Comments (

Ray Davis has been given unanimous approval to succeed Nolan Ryan as the controlling owner of the Texas Rangers.

Davis' position was announced last month, but it took a vote Thursday at the owner's quarterly meeting to make it official.

Each Major League Club has a designated control person who is accountable to Major League Baseball for the operation of the Club and for the Club’s compliance with the rules of Baseball.

Ryan, a Hall of Fame pitcher, resigned last month and said he will sell his ownership stake to Davis and Bob Simpson, the team's co-chairmen.
