Multiple groups have submitted bids to buy Marlins

Multiple groups have submitted bids to buy Marlins

The team has been rumored to be for sale for some time with an asking price in excess of $1 billion.

Bush plans to be the Marlins' "control person", the individual who would have ultimate control over franchise decisions, according to the source. His one known partner, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, obviously is rooted in the state.

If the reports are true, Bush and Jeter would have won the bidding over at least two other groups, one of which included Tagg Romney, son of 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and Hall of Fame pitcher Tom Glavine.

Any change of ownership would also need to be approved by Major League Baseball, something which could in theory take place at the league's next owners meeting set for May 16-18 in NY. Here's a look at baseball's unusual new pairing. "If they didn't want Loria, Jeter is like their dream guy to own this team", added Dennis Baquero who has been a fan of the Marlins since their inaugural season.

According to Forbes, "there is only one group with real interest in buying the Miami Marlins and no one has submitted a formal "bid" for the Major League Baseball team, despite reports to the contrary".

The deal could take months to conclude, but Bush will be the "control person", the Herald reported.

Jeter lives in Tampa, Florida, with his wife, supermodel Hannah Davis, who is expecting the couple's first child.

"I'm Derek Jeter, man".

Wayne Katz, the Proskauer Rose attorney representing the team, and Major League Baseball spokesman Pat Courtney declined to comment.

Jeter, who retired in 2014 after 20 seasons with the Yankees, has long talked about his dream of becoming an owner.

"Derek Jeter's name probably comes up a lot, and you don't always know the validity of it, but I know he loves the game", Girardi said. And Jeb's group is still scrambling to find enough investors to meet the Marlins asking price, the paper reports.
