Baseball owners will hold their final vote on the sale of the Rangers to the Greenberg-Ryan team.
The Major League Baseball ownership committee and executive council each unanimously approved the sale Wednesday at the quarterly owners' meetings in Minneapolis.
All that remains for the sale to be finalized is a final vote of all teams Thursday.
Commissioner Bud Selig made approval sound certain, saying "all is well that ends well."
Ryan and Greenberg went through a contentious auction with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban last week and won with a bid of $590 million.
