WASHINGTON-George W. Bush owned the Texas Rangers before he ever became U.S. president. Now his brother, Jeb, could be stepping up to the plate to buy his own Major League team — the Marlins.
He’s not the only one.
Retired New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter is also showing interest in the club, according to Fox Business Network.
Marlins officials would neither confirm nor deny the reports.
“I have no comment,” said Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria, who is in Washington to watch his team.
The former Florida governor expressed interest in ownership of the Marlins in 2013. But that was before team officials announced the franchise was for sale.
