The former New York Yankees captain, and current Players Tribune publisher, has plans to run both the business operations side and the baseball operations side — something that hardly happens in sports, according to CBS Sports.
The news comes roughly a month after it was revealed that Jeter had secured the financial backing he needed to execute his bid (h/t the Miami Herald).
Miami businessman Jorge Mas attempted to foil the former shortstop’s plans. However, Jeter was rumored to be Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria’s favored pick.
Loria was looking to sell the Marlins for $1.3 billion. He bought the franchise for $158 million in 2002. Forbes has valued the franchise at $940 million.
