Derek Jeter and the Miami Marlins Part Ways


February 28, 2022

SportsGrid’s Craig Mish reports that Derek Jeter has stepped down as CEO of the Miami Marlins, and the two have severed their relationship.

Jeter released a statement after the news became public, saying, “Today I am announcing that the Miami Marlins and I are officially ending our relationship and I will no longer serve as CEO nor as a shareholder in the Club. We had a vision five years ago to turn the Marlins franchise around, and as CEO, I have been proud to put my name and reputation on the line to make our plan a reality.” He added, “That said, the vision for the future of the franchise is different than the one I signed up to lead. Now is the right time for me to step aside as a new season begins.”

We wonder how Jeter’s vision of the club differed from the other owners; perhaps they wanted to win games.

There’s no word on whether or not Jeter left them a gift basket.

Over at FanDuel Sportsbook, the Marlins are +6000 to win the 2022 World Series.
