Derek Jeter is the recently retired Yankee Captain, playing all 20 seasons in pinstripes.
The former New York Yankees star and former Florida governor have joined forces in their pursuit of the Miami Marlins, a person familiar with the situation said Wednesday.
Jeter has expressed interest in owning an Major League Baseball team for years - and has even gotten the blessing of the Steinbrenner family. His brother George also co-owned the Texas Rangers at one point during the '90s.
Rothbaum, Jeter and Bush's top competition, has been a biotech investor for 25 years and founded Quogue Capital LLC in 2002, according to Bloomberg. "In my mind he'll always be a Yankee", Girardi said.
