Winners and Losers: A Look at the Success Rate of Celeb-Owned Sports Teams

Tom Clancy

Team: Baltimore Orioles
Years of Ownership: 1993-present
Championships Won and Playoff Appearances: Zero championships / Three playoff appearances

Tom Clancy is a best-selling author most known for his tech, spy, military thrillers. Clancy is also part owner of the Baltimore Orioles. Part of a group that bought the team in 1993, Clancy is a long-time Orioles fan who, like all fans with the necessary resources, decided rooting for his team simply wasn't enough. Nope, Clancy went out and bought a piece of the pie, and while he's seen just three playoff appearances and no rings to show for his troubles , the O's are coming off a great season. They look capable of finally competing in the once two-horse race that is the AL East.
