Nick LacheyWe're not making this up...

Nick Lachey, the oft seen tabloid magazine cover boy, and former husband of Jessica Simpson will become part owner of the AAA Tacoma Rainers. Lachey is part of a new ownership group for the Seattle Mariners affiliate and was introduced today in Tacoma. As reported in the News Tribune:

Nick Lachey, who appeared with ex-wife Jessica Simpson in the couple’s “Newlyweds” reality show on MTV, will be a part of the Rainiers’ ownership group, Schlegel Sports Group, spearheaded by Kirby Schlegel of Dallas.

Principal figures of the new ownership group, including Lachey, will be introduced to a group of 100 civic leaders, local business people and holdover season-ticket holders of the Triple-A baseball team today at the Greater Tacoma Convention and Trade Center.

It will be ownership’s first public appearance since the agreement to purchase the Rainiers from George and Sue Foster in July. The sale has since been approved by various sanctioning bodies, including the Pacific Coast League, late last month.

Lachey, a native of Harlan, Ky., was a member of the pop-music boy band 98 Degrees in the mid-1990s and has since flourished as a solo artist. He was nominated in the favorite pop/rock male artist category at the 2006 American Music Awards.
