COMPANY: Anaheim Angels

WHAT MAKES HIM HAUTE: When he purchased the Angels in 2003 from the Walt Disney Company (for a whopping $180 million), Moreno was the first Hispanic ever to own a major league team in the U.S. He’s signed star players like Vladimir Guerrero and taken the team to win American League West Division Championships in ’04, ’05, ’07, ‘08, and ’09. He’s increased the value of the Angels to at least twice of what he originally paid.
