Clearly, Tom Hicks and Family Having a Hard Time Saying Goodbye to the Texas Rangers
Let's give the man the floor:
"Obviously, this is a bittersweet moment for our family because these past twelve years with the Texas Rangers have produced a remarkable experience for all of us. I sincerely think the two major turning points for this franchise involved naming Jon Daniels general manager and Nolan Ryan becoming club president.
"Chuck Greenberg and Nolan take control of a club that is well-positioned to compete, not only for this year, but for many years to come. There is much that we will miss; however, this sale has produced an outcome that is positive for the Texas Rangers, Major League Baseball and even for the lenders. Most importantly, a strong leadership team will be in place to help guide the franchise to the next level. I look forward to joining all the other Ranger fans that cheer for this team to have success come October."
