Rusty Rose, a former co-owner of the Texas Rangers with former president George W. Bush, has died at the age of 74.
His family says in a statement that he passed away on Friday night after a long battle with depression.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Rose was publicity shy even though he worked in public arenas of finance and sports.
He founded Cardinal Investment Company, a Dallas investment management and brokerage firm, in 1974.
In 1989, he joined with Bush to purchase the Rangers. They sold the team in 1998.
Rose made a rare public statement then saying a person couldn't really own a baseball team, but only be a good steward of it for those who love the game.
The family statement says: "Rusty Rose was a good steward of baseball and life."
