STATEMENT FROM THE TEXAS RANGERS ON THE PASSING OF

FORMER OWNER EDWARD W. ROSE

 

Arlington, Texas — The Texas Rangers issued the following statement today on the passing of Edward W. (Rusty) Rose. Mr. Rose died on Friday night at the age of 74.

 

“The Texas Rangers organization is deeply saddened by the passing of Edward W. (Rusty) Rose. Mr. Rose joined George W. Bush in leading a Dallas-Fort Worth investor group that purchased controlling interest in the franchise in March 1989. As a General Partner over the next nine years, Mr. Rose provided strong and innovative leadership that allowed the Rangers to grow into one of Major League Baseball’s top franchises.

 

“Under Mr. Rose’s watch, the ownership group partnered with the City of Arlington in the construction of The Ballpark in Arlington and aggressively increased the resources dedicated to scouting, minor league development, and player acquisition. Their efforts resulted in the first playoff appearance in franchise history in 1996 and a second A.L. West Division title two years later.

 

“Mr. Rose was passionate about the Texas Rangers and was a true steward of the franchise. The Rangers express their deepest sympathies to Mr. Rose’s family and friends and we share their great loss.”
