What makes for a great owner? The No. 1 criteria is a desire to win. No. 2 is loyalty -- to the hometown, to the fans, to the players. No 3 is good old success.
10. Ewing Kaufman (Royals)
Kaufman owned the expansion Royals from 1969 until his death in 1993. By 1976, he had built a great new stadium and an extraordinarily popular team. KC was his town, and the beloved Mr. K spent, big time, to ensure a winning franchise.
