Owner Moreno to continue running MLB Angels
Art Moreno, owner of the Los Angeles Angels, withdrew his intention to sell. According to MLB.com, the Moreno family issued a statement on the 24th (Korean time) and said they would continue to own the club in 2023 and beyond. “During the sale, it became clear that we had a job to do,” said Moreno. I felt that I could have a positive impact on the future of the team and fans,” he said. “I promised the club the highest annual salary this winter. I want to give the fans the World Series championship trophy again.” 헤라카지노
Moreno, a former businessman, purchased the Angels team in 2003 from the World Disney Company for $184 million. It was the moment when he became the first Mexican-American to own a major sports club. The value of the club jumped 13.6 times to 2.5 billion dollars (about 3 trillion won) in 20 years. During this period, the Angels advanced to the postseason (PS) six times. It attracted more than 3 million spectators each season. However, since 2014, it has not crossed the threshold of fall baseball. 2002 is the only memory of winning the World Series.
Owner Moreno announced in August last year that he would begin the sale of the club. In fact, it is known that at least six investment groups, including Joe Laycove, owner of the Golden State Warriors of the NBA, Patrick Soon-Shiong, owner of the Los Angeles Times, and an unknown Japanese investor group, have shown interest in acquiring the club. Owner Moreno decided to continue running the club after much thought. At the end of this season, attention is focused on whether it will affect the future of Shohei Ohtani, who will be eligible for a free agent (FA).
