Forbes: Minority investment values Yanks at $1.7 billion

Mo sets all-time saves record in win over Twins

Ray Bartoszek, a commodities trader with a net worth estimated at $5 billion, purchased a minority share of the Yankees today, according to a variety of sources. Forbes says Bartoszek’s investment values the Yanks at nearly $1.7 billion. As ESPN New York detailed, Bartoszek allegedly purchased another minority share from one of the team’s limited partners who wished to sell. The sale will not impact the day-to-day management of the ballclub.

Bartoszek has recently been interested in breaking into the MLB ownership club. He was a runner-up to purchase a stake in the Mets earlier this year, but his offer fell short to David Einhorn’s proposal. Instead he gets the Yanks. Once upon a time, John McMullen said of owning a small piece of the Yanks, “Nothing is more limited than being a limited partner of George’s.” These days, though, it’s a badge of honor and apparently a sound investment indeed.

    Did Bartoszek buy directly into the New York Yankees, or Yankee Global Enterprises?

      Unclear. A bunch of limited liability holding companies own various pieces of the Yankees. He likely bought into one of those.

    Is that all? I think we should get a group of RAB followers together and form a syndicate and pull off a hostile takeover.

    I heard he wanted to guy the Mets but couldn’t find an acceptable amount of wampum.

    They should have made him eat AJ’s contract as part of the deal…
