What professional baseball team did Gene Autry own?
Gene Autry’s great love for baseball prompted him to acquire the American League California Angels in 1961. Active in Major League Baseball, Gene held the title of Vice President of the American League until his death in 1998. Mrs. Autry is happy to continue this tradition by serving as Honorary President of the American League. Of course, during the baseball season, she can be found in the Autry Suite with her guests rooting the Angels to another Championship.
