Not long after inking a monster contract with the Kansas City Chiefs, star quarterback Patrick Mahomes has undertaken an interesting new business venture. He’s now a part owner of MLB’s Kansas City Royals, per a club announcement.
Much as Mahomes stands to earn over the next decade, if he stays healthy, he’ll be far less wealthy than majority Royals owner John Sherman. When he landed the club last fall, Sherman and his group posted a hefty $1B.
Odds are that the ownership stake isn’t a terribly significant one. Still, it’s a notable development for sports in Kansas City. Mahomes, the son of long-time big leaguer Pat Mahomes, is arguably the top player in the NFL.
