Rangers GM Daniels gets promotion, new title

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has gotten a new
title.

The Rangers on Friday announced that Daniels has been promoted
to president of baseball operations/general manager. He says his
role will remain the same.

Texas said chief operating officer Rick George also got a
promotion, and will now be the team’s president of business
operations.

When Daniels became the Rangers’ general manager in October
2005, he was the youngest GM in major league history at 28 years
old. Texas has been to its only two World Series since then.

George joined the team in October 2010 in a role overseeing
ballpark operations, including ticket sales. The Rangers last
season drew a record attendance of more than 3.4 million people for
home games, including 38 sellouts.
