What MLB team has been under the same basic ownership the longest?

It doesn't have to be literally the same person- just the franchise that's gone longest since it's been sold to somebody or a company.

Update:

BA goes to whoever has details.

    George Steinbrenner bought the Yankees in 1973 (from CBS) for $10M. He had partners, but bought them all out long ago.

    King George is deceased, but the team remains in his family.

    Given the purchase price, if the Yankees are ever sold again, the ROI will be enormous.
