Former Rangers owner Corbett passes away

Former Texas Rangers owner Brad Corbett passed away Monday at the age of 75.

Corbett was the owner of the club from May 29, 1974 to Apr. 29, 1980.

"The spirit in which Mr. Corbett served as owner of the Rangers will be remembered always. The organization extends its deepest sympathies to his family and friends on his passing," the Rangers said in a statement.

During his ownership, the Rangers produced their first four winning seasons. Texas' 94 victories in 1977 remained the most in team history until 1999.
