Patrick Mahomes Owns Your Favorite Football Team and Now the Kansas City Royals

Patrick Mahomes has become the youngest owner in professional sports history — if you don't count Billy Heywood from Little Big League

The Kansas City Royals announced Tuesday that the Super Bowl MVP — and the best quarterback in the league — has joined the franchise's ownership group as a part owner. 

This adds to the long list of teams that Mahomes has already completely owned — including the entire AFC West, the Tennessee Titans, Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, among others. 

"I'm honored to become a part owner of the Kansas City Royals," Mahomes said in a statement. "I love this city and the people of this great town." 

The 24-year-old phenom is no stranger to the game of baseball. His father, Pat Mahomes, pitched for six MLB teams, compiling a career record of 42-39. 

The younger Mahomes initially played baseball at Texas Tech before committing full-time to football.

While 2020 has sucked for nearly everyone, it's been a banner year for the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback. Mahomes had a magical postseason run that was capped off by a comeback victory in Super Bowl LIV, he signed the biggest deal in sports history and now he's putting his newfound fortune to good use by becoming a minority owner of an MLB team. 

Mahomes might not be a professional baseball player, sure, but he can call himself an owner before he's 25
