2020 has been a difficult year for most people. Not for Patrick Mahomes.
He won a Super Bowl, was named MVP of that Super Bowl, signed the richest contract in sports history worth up to over a half-a-billion dollars, was put on the cover of the Madden 20, and is now an owner...of a sports franchise.
The Chiefs quarterback became the youngest owner in sports history when he became part owner of the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals announced the newest member of their ownership group across their social media platforms, officially welcoming Mahomes to the team. Royals Chairman, CEO and principal owner John Sherman expressed his excitement, as the team adds another name to the Royals' group of co-investors.
“We are very proud and excited to have Patrick as our partner in the ownership group of this franchise,” Sherman said. “Along with the rest of Kansas City, I have watched Patrick compete and become an extraordinary leader, both on and off the football field.”
The statement also includes a quote from Mahomes, who becomes the youngest part-owner in sports history.
“I’m honored to become a part owner of the Kansas City Royals,” Mahomes said. “I love this city and the people of this great town. This opportunity allows me to deepen my roots in this community, which is something I’m excited to do.”
