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. This could signify a potential rebirth for one of baseball's more hapless franchises.
Venture capitalist Bruce Sherman is the group's main investor and he'll play a similar role to a managing partner, according to Jackson. No word on how much Jordan will be putting in the pot, but regardless of how much he contributes, it's safe to say that the Miami will soon be a Jumpman city.
