After striking out on three pitches during the 2016 Republican presidential primary race, former Gov. Jeb Bush has hit a homerun in the business world.
Bush and former New York Yankees player Derek Jeter’s investment group have circled the bases the fastest in the ongoing effort to buy struggling Miami Marlins.
According to the Miami Herald, Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria accepted Bush’s group’s $1.3 billion bid for his team, moving the deal along for approval by the league, and to hammer out any other “details.”
Both Jeter and Bush will apparently be running the show, being more hands on with the daily baseball operations. Bush is said to taking on the role as “control person” in the venture.
Of course he would be the “control person.” Whether it was running the state of Florida or running for president, Bush has always run the show.
There are other money men involved, who have not been identified, but will soon be outed during the Major League Baseball vetting process.
