MLB HOPES TO AP­PROVE MAR­LINS SALE BY NOVEM­BER

USA TODAY US Edition - - SPORTS -

Ma­jor League Base­ball hopes to hold a spe­cial meet­ing be­fore Novem­ber to vote on ap­prov­ing the sale of the Mi­ami Mar­lins to a group headed by ven­ture cap­i­tal­ist Bruce Sherman that in­cludes for­mer New York Yan­kees cap­tain Derek Jeter. The next own­ers meet­ing is Nov. 15-16 at Or­lando. “I don’t think it will go as long as Novem­ber,” Com­mis­sioner Rob Man­fred said Thurs­day. “I don’t have a date yet.” Man­fred said the spe­cial meet­ing likely would be held as a con­fer­ence call. Mar­lins Pres­i­dent Da

vid Sam­son said on Aug. 12 that a signed $1.2 bil­lion agree­ment had been sub­mit­ted to the league.
