Derek Jeter And Jeb Bush Reportedly Win Auction For Miami Marlins

The Marlins are expected to sell for $1.3 billion, according to the Miami Herald, and it is unclear where the Jeter-Bush group is getting its money.

There still is a long way to go in the process.

The Miami Herald reported that the purchase price for the club will be $1.3 billion, and that Bush will be the "control person", in Major League Baseball parlance, for the five-person group.

People representing Jeter and Bush did not return a call for comment, nor did a spokesperson for the Miami Marlins. In fact, the moment you heard Jeter was involved in a group pursuing the purchase of the Marlins, you probably figured muscle memory would rule the day and that No. 2 would finish No. 1.

ESPN later cited multiple sources with knowledge of the negotiations in reporting that Ivanka Trump's father-in-law, Charles Kushner, was part of the potential purchase group. The organization is said to be "optimistic" that a deal will be reached to transfer control from current owner Jeffrey Loria to Bush, who'd be the new control person, and the four other members of the group. The transaction would be subject to the approval of at least 23 of baseball's 30 owners, who next meet in May.




Diehard fans of the New York Yankees will have to get used to seeing franchise icon Derek Jeter associated with another Major League Baseball team.

"I've made it very clear of ownership aspirations at some point", Jeter told the New York Daily News in December. The brother of former President George W. Bush was the owner of the Texas Rangers from 1989 to 1998.

Asked if he could envision Jeter being successful in an ownership capacity, Prado replied: "Why not?"

The Marlins have won two World Series championships in team history: 2003 and 1997.

Marlins manager Don Mattingly recalled earlier this month how The Captain had always talked about owning a team. But the Marlins have failed to make the postseason since then, and the Loria era has marked by frequent teardowns and rebuilds.
