Forbes on Tuesday reported that one prospective group being led by Tagg Romney, son of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is out of the bidding for the Major League franchise. Aside from Jeter, the ownership group features former Florida governor Jeb Bush.
The Miami Marlins could shortly have some new and famous owners, after Jeb Bush and Derek Jeter agreed a deal to buy the team.
The Marlins declined to comment.
Other potential bidders in the Marlins sale were a group including Tagg Romney and former Major League Baseball star Tom Glavine, and another group was headed by Quogue Capital LLC founder Wayne Rothbaum.
Late in 2016, the family of President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, reportedly had a handshake agreement to buy the team but that fell through.

He said the fact that a motion of no confidence, for example, required the support of the majority to succeed did not mean that it was unconstitutional.
For Jeter, 42, the purchase of the Marlins would represent the culmination of a process began well before his playing days with the New York Yankees were over. "You spend that much time doing something, you need to get away and focus on some other things".
Soshnick reported April 19 that bids for the Marlins were due the previous week and ranged from "between $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion". Jeter is expected to have a, "active roll" with the club. Forbes says the franchise is now valued at $940 million. Still, when asked about his future in baseball, he has always stated that he wanted to become an owner some day. Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria nearly sold the team to the Kushner family two months ago, but the deal fell through.
Jeter, who retired in 2014 after 20 seasons with the Yankees, has long talked about his dream of becoming an owner. The person also wouldn't name the group's other investors, though Bush's network of donors to his unsuccessful presidential campaign was vast.
So you should go ahead and bet that "Captain Intangibles" will make a tangible difference if he ends up in an executive suite in Miami, where the Marlins are trying to break a streak of seven consecutive losing seasons.
