New York native, prominent MILB owner and investor Gary Green (Manhasset native/Great Neck H.S. product), under the “Baseball Alliance LLC” banner, has stakes in three franchises, the Richmond Flying Squirrels (Virginia), the Montgomery Biscuits (Alabama) and the Omaha Storm Chasers (Nebraska), which he purchased from business magnate Warren Buffet.
Today, as president and CEO of Alliance Omaha Soccer Holdings, Green announced that the group has been granted the rights by United Soccer League (USL) to own and operate a League One club. The team will host its inaugural season in 2020 and will be the only professional soccer club currently operating in the state of Nebraska.
Buffet recognized Green’s passion for baseball – “we know he’s a great owner and has a great enthusiasm for the game,” were Buffet’s remarks upon the sale to Green.
Green also owns the highly-regarded baseball publication “Baseball America” and is CEO of Alliance Building Services which is one of the largest private building service companies in North America, and executed the maintenance manifest for the inaugural seasons at Yankee Stadium and Citi Field.
