Patrick Mahomes is living his best life.

After making a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs worth $450 million over a 10-year period, that could be worth up to $503 million, the star QB has become a member of the new ownership group of the Kansas City Royals.

The Royals announced Mahomes’ partial ownership on Tuesday, noting that he “spent a lot of time in clubhouses as a kid.”

“He loves football, but he also grew up loving the game of baseball,” said John Sherman, principal owner of the Royals. “We look forward to many years of a winning partnership.”

Ironically, Mahomes is the son of former major league pitcher Pat Mahomes. He pitched in more than 300 big league games, mainly as a reliever.

The younger Mahomes was once a baseball prospect and was drafted by the Detroit Tigers in 2014.

“I’m honored to become a part-owner of the Kansas City Royals,” Mahomes said in a statement released by the team.

“I love this city and the people of this great town. This opportunity allows me to deepen my roots in this community, which is something I’m excited to do.”

Mahomes’ extension includes a $140 million injury guarantee, as well as a no-trade clause. With Lamar Jackson on his heels as arguably the best “new” QB in the game, Mahomes is definitely living his best life on and off the field.
