Former Florida Gov. and unsuccessful 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has ended his efforts to buy the Miami Marlins, according to an Associated Press report this afternoon.
Bush and Yankee legend Derek Jeter were part of a group trying to buy the team.
It wasn’t the first pairing of a Bush family member and a Yankee icon. In 1948, George H.W. Bush met Hall of Fame slugger Babe Ruth at Yale when Bush was captain of Yale’s baseball squad.
Jeter remains interested in being part of a Marlins ownership group, the AP reports.
