Chuck Greenberg (Myrtle Beach)
Carolina League

For more than two decades, Chuck has built his reputation as an innovative franchise owner and operator, corporate and sports attorney, dealmaker, advisor and expert on the business and economics of major professional sports.

He is currently the Chairman and Managing Partner of the Carolina League's Myrtle Beach Pelicans and the State College Spikes of the New York-Penn League.

In 2002, Chuck led a group that purchased the Eastern League's Altoona Curve. During his tenure as that team's President and Managing Partner from 2002-08, the Curve set numerous attendance records and won the 2006 John H. Johnson President's Trophy for overall franchise excellence.

In 2005, Chuck led an investor group which acquired the former New Jersey Cardinals and relocated that club to State College, Pennsylvania for the 2006 season. He was instrumental in working with Penn State University on the financing, construction and operating agreement for Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, the home of the Spikes and PSU Baseball.

His involvement with the Pelicans began on May 31, 2006, when his ownership group finalized the purchase of the franchise from Capitol Broadcasting Company.

Chuck is also the former Managing Partner & CEO of the Texas Rangers, a role he assumed in 2010 after his group of investors (Rangers Baseball Express, LLC), which included Baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, acquired the Major League Baseball franchise from Tom Hicks and Hicks Sports Group after an epic sales process. Chuck's tenure as Managing Partner and CEO was highlighted by the Rangers reaching their first World Series in the 39-year history of the franchise and by the negotiation of a landmark media rights agreement with Fox Sports that set a new standard in the industry.

Chuck is also the Founder and Chairman of Greenberg Sports Group (GSG), which provides management, consulting and marketing services to the sports industry.

Greenberg is of counsel in the Pittsburgh-based law firm Reed Smith LLP. From 1998 until June 2010, he was a Partner at Pepper Hamilton LLP, where he headed the firm's sports practice and was a member of its Executive Committee.

Chuck received his B.A. from Tufts University in Medford, Mass., and is a graduate of the University of Michigan Law School.

He and his wife Jennifer have three sons, Jeff, Jack and Ben.

He has served on the Minor League Baseball Board of Trustees since 2008.
