LeBron James Has Become A Part-Owner Of The Boston Red Sox

It is unclear what James will do for the Red Sox, both publicly and in the boardroom, but it seems sense for someone of his public status to want his involvement to be as proactive as possible.

According to a recent Boston Globe report, LeBron James is about to make history by joining the Fenway Sports Group, which also includes the Boston Red Sox, the Liverpool Football Club, the TV network NESN, Roush Fenway Racing, Fenway Sports Management, and Fenway Park itself, for an undisclosed investment.

According to a Boston Globe source, James and his longtime business associate Maverick Carter have both invested in FSG, making them the first Black partners in the company’s almost 20-year history. The precise financial details of the investment aren’t public knowledge, but James and Carter are now part of a large family of investors with stakes in the company, and in a statement to the press James spoke enthusiastically of the development:

It is unclear what James will do for the Red Sox, both publicly and in the boardroom, but it seems sense for someone of his public status to want his involvement to be as proactive as possible. That might prove a little complicated, since James is famously a fan of other ball teams like, the LA Dodgers and the Cleveland Indians, and, most troublingly for Red Sox fans, their hated New York Yankees.

That’s not to mention how crowded James’s plate is already, between his time on the court, his myriad other business ventures, and his upcoming feature film debut in the “Space Jam” sequel. But given his extensive background managing numerous tasks simultaneously, it is logical to assume that he will be more than capable of managing one more.
