Telling Fortunes

No. 34: Ray Davis

Age: 71Home: DallasNet Worth: $1.9 billion 

Everybody learned Ray Davis’s name when he became a co-owner of the Texas Rangers, in 2010, but nobody learned much more because that’s the way Davis likes it. He’s no Mark Cuban. He’s not even former Rangers owner Eddie Chiles, the irascible oil-field services mogul who gave us Mario Mendoza and not much else (excepting his “I’m Mad Too, Eddie!” anti-regulation bumper stickers) in the eighties. Like Chiles, Davis is oil patch—he made his fortune buying and selling pipelines and natural gas until his retirement in 2007—but that’s where the similarities end. With back-to-back trips to the World Series and a net worth well past the billionaire mark, what is there to be mad about?
