Principle Cleveland Indians owner Larry Dolan is born in Cleveland Heights, Ohio.

The northeast Ohio native attended St. Ignatius High School and the University of Notre Dame. He served two years in the United States Marine Corps before working as an assistant prosecutor and later in private practice as an attorney.

He, through a family trust, purchased the Indians from Dick Jacobs in 2000 for $323 million. His son Paul is a part owner and is the Chairman and CEO of the team, while his nephew James owns the NBA’s New York Knicks and NHL’s New York Rangers.

He was inducted into the Greater Cleveland Sports Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2014.
