Now that we are well into the baseball season, I cant help myself but bring out some baseball references for my articles. And yes, I am a Yankees fan but please dont hold that against me. In 1915, the Major League Baseball (MLB) team, New York Yankees were sold to Colonel Jacob Ruppert and Captain Tillinghast L’Hommedieu Huston for $1.25 million. This was the first time they were sold once being renamed the Yankees from their previous highlander era. With Rupperts deep pockets and their willingness to invest in players, this brought about the golden years of the Yankees as it would lead into the era of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and of course the infamous murderers row. According to Forbes, today the Yankees are worth about 3.7B. Not too shabby of a return on investment. Now at the time, no one would have fathomed how big the MLB would have grown to today. This brings an interesting parallel to emerging sports leagues today, particularly E-Sports.
The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) is a public company with a portfolio of sports teams and entertainment related real estate assets. With their deep pockets and their track record of investing into superstars in the sports teams they own, they too follow a similar approach as to how the Yankees were built to the dynasty they are today. Some examples of investing into star players can be seen with the signing of Carmelo Anthony to the New York Knicks in 2011 and the signing of Rick Nash to the New York Rangers in 2012. Both teams have been fairly successful at the time of those signings. The Knicks made the playoffs 3 seasons in a row after the Anthony signing and the Rangers have made 6 playoffs after the Nash signing. The Madison Square Garden Company can once again use their deep pockets to build their newest sports team acquisition.
