Derek Jeter-Led Investors Group Purchases The Miami Marlins
An investment group led by a NY businessman and Players Tribune editor-in-chief Derek Jeter has made the winning bid to buy the Miami Marlins, according to multiple reports.
Sherman is going to be the managing general partner of the team, according to the Herald, while Jeter, who put in about $25 million, will focus on the player development and business sides of the team.
