Bud Selig Confirms Approval Of Rangers Sale

Richard Durrett reports that Chuck Greenberg has announced via text that the sale of the Texas Rangers to his ownership group has been approved.

Closing on the team could take place as early as later today, but Greenberg and club president Nolan Ryan, along with the entire ownership group, are expected to be the owners when the club faces Boston on Friday at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Bud Selig has confirmed that the vote was unanimous. A formal announcement from Major League Baseball is expected shortly.
