MIAMI — According to Douglas Hanks of the Miami Herald, former New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter and former Florida governor Jeb Bush plan to make a bid together to purchase the Miami Marlins from current owner Jeffrey Loria.

Last week was the deadline to turn in bids for the team, which range from $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion, according to Bloomberg.

Bush’s ties to Florida are obvious, but Jeter currently owns a mansion in Tampa and, according to, he has always wanted to own an MLB team.
