Jon Daniels was named General Manager of the Texas Rangers on October 4th, 2005. At the age of 28 years and 41 days, he became the youngest GM in major league history, about 10 months younger than Theo Epstein was when he became the Boston Red Sox General Manager. His contract was renewed following the Rangers' excellent 2010 season, when they reached the World Series for the first time. The negotiations were marked by interference by Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg, one of the issues that led to Greenberg being forced to step down in favor of Nolan Ryan in spring training 2011. In early 2013, Daniels was promoted to President and Chief of baseball operations for the Rangers, while still keeping his responsibilities as General Manager.
