FLORIDA – Two famous men from very different backgrounds are reportedly coming together in an attempt to buy the Miami Marlins.

New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter is teaming up with former Florida governor Jeb Bush in an attempt to purchase the franchise, according to the Miami Herald.

Jeter and Bush had previously been mentioned as suitors for the franchise, but had pursued the Marlins separately until now.

Together, they’ll join forces in an attempt to compete against Wayne Rothbaum, a New York financier, according to the Herald.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has made it no secret he’s willing to sell the franchise. Reports emerged in December that he’s looking for $1.7 billion for the team. If he receives that price, it’s believed he’ll sell.
