Oilman and baseball entrepreneur. In 1948 he purchased the Texas Rebels of the AA Texas League, and renamed them the Eagles. They won the Texas League pennant in 1952 (the first time since 1936). He turned a lackluster franchise into a powerful force. He integrated the Texas League five years after the major leagues ended segregation.
