Is Jim Crane The Classiest Owner in Sports?

The Latest Word
Embed from Getty Images

Jim Crane is the owner of t he Houston Astros, winners of the 2017 World Series and the answer is yes. Not even close.

Here’s why: When his Houston Astros won the 2017 baseball world series, Crane not only gave championship rings to team members, but also to everyone of the 900 people who work in the Astros organization–the ticket sellers and takers, the ushers, the retailers. Here’s the full story.

So, besides being a very good owner, Crane is that increasing rare thing in sports and business: a really good man who cares about the people who helped him get to the top.

Crane is precisely what sports needs more of these days: sportsmen–athletes and owners–who have a deep sense of sportsmanship inside them.

The 2018 New York Auto Show

Point of Information:
Embed from Getty Images
The 2018 New York Auto Show is a good place to spot trends in the automobile industry. What did we learn from this year’s show? That SUVs are fast becoming the dominant car class and that smaller, more luxurious SUVs are re-shaping the industry. Here’s Bloomberg’s take on the best of the New  York Auto Show.
