Tom Glavine may make pitch to buy the Miami Marlins


Braves great Tom Glavine could be pulling for a different team soon. And he might be going up against Derek Jeter again too.

According to Bloomberg News, the Hall of Fame pitcher is part of a group bidding to buy the Miami Marlins.

Glavine has reportedly joined a group led by Solamere Capital co-founder Tagg Romney.

Jeter, the retired New York Yankees star, is also among others interested in acquiring the Marlins.

The 51-year-old Glavine won 305 games in the majors, including two stints with the Braves. He pitched for Atlanta from 1987 to 2002, but left as a free agent and played five seasons for the Braves’ rival New York Mets. He returned to the Braves for one season in 2008 before retiring.

He was picked for the Braves Hall of Fame in 2010 and the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014.

He was  a two-time Cy Young Award winner and a 10-time All-Star.

Bids for the Marlins are between $1.2 billion and $1.3 billion, Bloomberg reported.

Forbes values the franchise at $940 million.

Current owner Jeffrey Loria bought the team in 2002 for $158 million.
