I heard that his share is between 5% and around 22% but because the Sox have so many 'owners' his share is actually the majority share of the club.
He's also been given some additional percentage of the franchise because he's run the team for all these years.
On the surface his percentage of ownership is small on a scale of 1-100, but it's enought to be in charge of the team.
