Here’s a recent baseball story from the Associated Press:
An investment group led by former Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow, who lost his job in baseball after stealing signs, has bought Spanish soccer club Leganés.
“We will do everything we can to improve this club,” Luhnow said in Madrid on Thursday after buying the second division club for an undisclosed sum from previous owners Victoria Pavón and Felipe Moreno.
Leganés is a modest club based in a neighborhood south of Madrid. The team finished 12th in the 22-team second division last season.
Two years ago, Luhnow and Astros manager AJ Hinch were suspended from Major League Baseball for a year after they were found to have used a sign-stealing system during Houston’s run to the 2017 World Series title and again in the 2018 season developed electronics. Both were subsequently released in January 2020.
Luhnow heads Blue Crow Sports, an investment group that includes investors from the United States, Mexico, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Canada. Earlier this month, Blue Crow Sports completed the acquisition of Mexican club Cancun FC.
Leganés had been owned since 2008 by Pavón and Moreno, a local couple who took over when the club was in debt and playing in the third division.
The club was promoted to the first division for the first time in 2016. He competed against the top teams in Spain for four seasons before being relegated. Its biggest success came in 2017/18 when it beat Real Madrid en route to reach the Copa del Rey semi-finals.
Luhnow’s talks with the former owners began in September. He said his group chose Leganés because they believe Spanish football has the greatest potential for growth in European football, partly because of the league’s strict cost control measures and its recent investment deal with a private equity firm.
As the new president of Leganés, Luhnow said his group wants to build their youth teams, promote their women’s team and invest in technologies such as the use of big data analytics.
“All sports have used technology to create advantages and that’s what we want to do,” Luhnow said in Spanish. “We have a group of people with experience, including the Premier League and MLS, who know how to use technology and Leganés can benefit from that. Football lags a bit behind other sports… but that will change in the years to come.”
