Mr. Corbett was the Principal Owner of the Texas Rangers from May 29, 1974 to April 29, 1980. His tenure as owner was marked by a passion and drive to bring a winning team to the fans of North Texas. During his ownership, the Rangers produced their first four winning seasons and finished second three times. Texas’ 94 victories in 1977 remained the most in team history until 1999.
The spirit in which Mr. Corbett served as Owner of the Rangers will be remembered always. The organization extends its deepest sympathies to his family and friends on his passing.
