Former Texas Ranger managing partner Chuck Greenberg is heading up a group that is reportedly close to purchasing the Frisco Roughriders

Former Texas Ranger managing partner Chuck Greenberg, the man who put together the group that bought the Rangers from Tom Hicks back in 2010, is reportedly heading up a group that is close to purchasing the Frisco Roughriders.

Frisco is the Rangers' AA affiliate.  Greenberg already owns the Rangers' high-A affiliate, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Greenberg, as you may recall, made himself popular with fans with his accessibility, and even posted on a certain Rangers blog from time to time.  Interestingly, although he was forced out, things between Greenberg and the Rangers are positive, according to Drew Davison is the S-T article linked above:

Greenberg, though, has maintained a positive relationship with the Rangers since stepping down.

I got to visit with Greenberg at length a couple of times when he was the Rangers, and found him to be very engaging and a great ambassador for the team, someone who seemed to really care about the fans and the fan experience.  Greenberg being involved with the Roughriders would, I suspect, be a plus for Frisco fans.
