Marlins confirm sale agreement with Derek Jeter group

Derek Jeter has tentative deal to buy the Miami MLB Team

"If Bruce Sherman and Derek Jeter would like me to serve, then it's something I would certainly talk about", said Samson.

Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has agreed to sell the team to a group of investors, which include the former New York Yankees shortstop, The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reported Friday, citing a Major League Baseball source.

Jeter, who made $266 million in salaries on the field, is believed to be contributing $25 million to the purchase of the Marlins.

To go from the famous Yankees to the struggling Marlins will be a significant challenge for Jeter. The Marlins have not reached the playoffs since. Bush. Jeb! and Jeter were originally in on an effort to buy the team together, but that attempt fell apart in a power struggle when Jeb! realized that Jeter wanted to run the business and baseball sides of the franchise. The legendary player has owned the Charlotte Bobcats for several seasons. There is also how Loria managed to get the city of Miami to essentially give him hundreds of millions, according to Deadspin, to build a new baseball stadium in 2012.

Sherman is being designated the control person, but he's 69 and it isn't clear how much day-to-day involvement he seeks.

However, it may be too early for Miami fans to celebrate just yet. Jeter is expected to have a title such as CEO or team president and have active involvement, though his relatively low personal investment - $25M according to sources - would not qualify him to be designated as the control person by Major League Baseball.
