Sources close to the situation have informed FanRag Sports that Tagg Romney and Tom Glavine are, in fact, working together to potentially purchase the Miami Marlins. While the Marlins have seemingly been available for purchase since the start of 2017, the club remains under the control of owner Jeffrey Loria as it stands today.
It is also worth noting that FanRag Sports’ own Jon Heyman previously reported that the Romney family attempted to bid on buying a small stake in the heralded New York Yankees back in late February, which was shortly after they failed in their initial attempt to purchase the Marlins.
The 46-year-old Tagg, Mitt Romney’s eldest son, had worked in marketing for both the Los Angeles Dodgers and Reebok before ultimately founding and selling a software company of his own. Later becoming a partner in a private equity firm, he then worked as a senior aide on his father’s presidential campaigns in both 2008 and 2012.
On the other hand, the now 51-year-old Glavine was notably inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014. A 10-time All-Star as a big league pitcher, the seasoned southpaw suited up for the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets along the way while remaining a staple of Major League Baseball between 1987 and 2008.
The two-time National League Cy Young Award winner in Glavine (1991, 1998) was also tabbed as the 1995 World Series MVP as the Braves defeated the Cleveland Indians of the American League in six games.
The Marlins franchise has been around since 1993 and has won two World Series.
