Former Astros GM Luhnow buys Spanish soccer club Leganés


MADRID (AP) — An investment group led by former Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow has bought Spanish soccer club Leganés. Luhnow lost his job in baseball with the Astros in 2020 in the wake of a sign-stealing scheme during the team’s World Series title run in 2017 and again in 2018. An investigation by Major League Baseball revealed no evidence that Luhnow was involved in or aware of the sign-stealing scheme. Luhnow also has denied any involvement. Luhnow heads Blue Crow Sports. That company completed its acquisition of Mexican soccer club Cancun FC this month. Leganés is a modest club based in a neighborhood of southern Madrid.
