Derek Jeter Double Play: Buys Marlins, Baby Daughter Born
It was quite the week for Derek Jeter. Earlier in the week, his group completed a deal to buy the Miami Marlins. Then today it was announced Jeter's wife, Hannah, gave birth.Bella Raine Jeter was born yesterday, announced by Jeter's Players' Tribune Twitter account.
Bella is the Jeters first child. They married last July.
While investor Bruce Sherman is expected to be managing general partner, Jeter is slated to run both baseball and business operations for the Marlins. While having won a two world series in their relatively short time in the National League, the Marlins have struggled financially in the Miami market. Turning the team around, especially financially, would be quite an accomplishment for the future Hall of Famer.
