Drayton Mclane

Drayton McLane Jr. owns the Houston Astros, which he purchased in 1992 and operates as one of the enterprises of McLane Group. His far-flung interests grew out of a grocery business started by his grandfather, Robert McLane, in Cameron, Texas in the late 1800s. McLane, who lives in Temple when he is not in Houston overseeing the Astros operation, is a graduate of Baylor University. Drayton and his wife, Elizabeth, have two sons, Drayton III and Denton. The McLanes are members of First Baptist Church of Temple, where he teaches Sunday School.
