The Miami Herald first reported that Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria had agreed to sell the team for $1.2 billion on Friday evening, to a group led by investor Bruce Sherman and the former Yankee shortstop. The club has not confirmed the reports, although ESPN said the deal is likely to be announced "in the coming days".
According to the Post, Jeter's interest in being a team executive is fueled by a desire to one day buy a franchise on his own, much like how Jordan was a Washington Wizards executive and then eventually bought the Charlotte Bobcats.
The Sherman led group, which includes Michael Jordan the former great of the National Basketball Association, beat out a contingent that Jorge Mas a Miami businessman led. Quogue Capital founder Wayne Rothbaum, who led a third group that included former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, dropped out of the bidding earlier this week.
Rep. Keith Ellison: Kim Jong-un is 'Acting More Responsible' Than Trump
He said: "I am concerned by reports that detainees are not receiving due legal process and are being held in inhumane conditions". I mean, his rhetoric might make Kim Jong Un think that he needs to strike first.
Loria acquired the Marlins in 2002 from John Henry for just $158 million.
Miami won the 2003 World Series but has not returned to the postseason since. Jeter is expected to have a title such as CEO or team president and have active involvement, though his relatively low personal investment - $25M according to sources - would not qualify him to be designated as the control person by Major League Baseball.
