Warren Buffet
Warren Buffett, seen here throwing
out the first pitch at a Red Sox
game, tops the richest Americans
with sports investments

Sixty-six, or 17 percent, of the 400 richest Americans have a stake in pro sports ownership according to Forbes latest listing and research by the SportsBusiness Daily.

This year, entry to the Forbes list was set at a minimum of $950M, down from $1.3B for the previous two years.

Of the 66, at the top of the list is Warren Buffett who is an investor in minor league Triple-A Omaha Royals of the Pacific Coast League. Others on Forbes richest list with baseball investments include Lester Crown (minority owner of the Yankees), Ted Lerner (owner, Washington Nationals), John Malone (Liberty Media chairman, owner Atlanta Braves), Robert Rich (owner of minor league Triple-A Buffalo Bison of the International League), Drayton McLane (owner, Houston Astros), John Fisher (investor, Oakland A’s), George Steinbrenner (Yankees Chair; YES Network Owner), Tom Hicks (Texas Rangers owner), Joe Ricketts (soon to be owner of the Chicago Cubs), and Arte Moreno (owner, Los Angeles Angels).

In a sign that the recession is taking a hit to most all investors, only 9 of the 66 on Forbes’ list that are sports investors showed net worth increase or remain the same as last year, with just 3 (Jerry Jones, Malcom Glazer, Steve Bisciotti) seeing net worth increase.

Below is the complete list:
