Forbes: Sox Owner Henry's Net Worth At $2.5 Billion

(USAToday Sports)
The latest FORBES ranking of 2017's richest pro sports owners has our own lovable John Henry coming in at #36—with a personal net worth of $2.5 billion. Remember that the next time he cries poor-mouth about signing a top free-agent or when he's raising your ticket prices. Henry's empire—originally garnered through bizarre commodities trading—now covers foreign soccer, auto racing, lame sports networks and your Boston Red Sox. To be fair to Johnny, Bob Kraft far outpaces him at #6—with a net worth of $6.2 billion. And, even Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs way outshines Henry—coming in at #17 and $4.4 billion. Well, maybe we can cut some slack for the Ichabod Crane look-a-like. Nah!
