Yep, LeBron James is now a part-owner of one of the most storied franchises in pro sports ... the Boston Red Sox.
So, how did it happen?
LeBron has obtained shares in the Fenway Sports Group -- which is the parent company of the BoSox, along with several other prominent sports teams and companies.
No word on how many shares LeBron owns or how much money he put down -- but what's clear is he's a minority partner in FSG, which means he's a part-owner of the Sox, as first reported by the Boston Globe.
By the way, the Boston Globe is owned by John Henry -- the majority owner of the Boston Red Sox, who's reportedly worth $2.8 BILLION.
LeBron has publicly supported the NY Yankees for years -- but obviously, those days are over now.
