Tom Hicks Dallas Stars
In December 1995, Tom contracted to purchase the National Hockey League (NHL) franchise, Dallas Stars, from Norman Green. In December 1995, Hicks bought the Dallas Stars for $82 million. He served as the Stars’ Chairman of the Board and the club’s representative on the NHL Board of Governors during his tenure as owner of the club.
Hicks played an instrumental role in the development and planning of the American Airlines Center. The Stars won seven division titles, two Western Conference crowns, two Presidents’ Trophies (as the team with the best regular-season record), two consecutive trips to the Stanley Cup Finals and the 1999 Stanley Cup Championship under Hicks’ ownership.
Tom’s company defaulted on $525 million in bank loans backed by the Stars in April 2010 and a 50% interest in the American Airlines Center. Lenders voted to agree to have the Stars file for bankruptcy and sold at auction on September 13, 2011. A bankruptcy court judge approved a bid by Vancouver businessman and Kamloops Blazers owner Tom Gaglardi on November 22, 2011, to buy the team for $240 million.
Tom Hicks Texas Rangers
Hicks bought the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball’s American League in June 1998, from George W. Bush. The Rangers won the American League West Division crown in 1998 and 1999 under Hicks’ ownership but failed to deliver a World Series.
Tom made headlines across all MLB when he personally negotiated and signed shortstop Alex Rodriguez to the biggest contract in MLB history at that time; a ten-year, $252 million deal at the December 2000 winter meetings. The contract later turned out to be a big blunder for Hicks as it severely limited Rangers’ ability to sign other players.
Hicks pointed to the blockbuster contract years later, as “one of his biggest regrets”. It was announced on January 23, 2010, that Tom Hicks had agreed to sell the Rangers to a group led by Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan. He would have been a minority shareholder in the new ownership group.
