About Tom Grieve
Grieve debuted on Prime Sports broadcasts in 1995, the longest tenure of any TV broadcaster in club history. Elected to the Rangers Hall of Fame in 2010, he has been with the Washington/Texas franchise for nearly 48 of his 49 years in professional baseball.
Named the Rangers’ Vice President and General Manager September 1984, Arlington local Tom Grieve became the youngest General Manager in baseball at the time. He remained in the position until September 1994, the 2nd-longest tenure of any General Manager in team history behind only current General Manager Jon Daniels.
“I grew up in the Pittsfield, MA Boys Club. It was there that I learned how to swim and play basketball. I went to overnight camp and then became a counselor.
More importantly, I learned fair play, honesty and sportsmanship and that we should be judged by our actions, not by our religious beliefs or the color of our skin. I love the Boys & Girls Club…it has had a profound impact on my life.”
