Jeter doesn’t have money needed to buy Mar­lins

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

MI­AMI | Derek Jeter told Ma­jor League Baseball on Thurs­day he doesn’t yet have the nec­es­sary money to buy the Mi­ami Mar­lins and is still seek­ing help from other in­vestors, a per­son fa­mil­iar with the ne­go­ti­a­tions said.

The per­son de­scribed the sta­tus of the Mar­lins’ sale talks to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the team isn’t dis­cussing the ne­go­ti­a­tions pub­licly.

The per­son said Jeter, a 14-time All-Star short­stop, met with MLB and Mar­lins of­fi­cials in New York and pro­vided an up­date on his ef­forts to raise the needed money. The per­son said mul­ti­ple other groups re­main in the mix to pur­chase the team.
