Derek Jeter and Jeb Bush join forces for Marlins bid

Jeb Bush (R) and retired baseball star Derek Jeter are reportedly partnering on a bid to buy Major League Baseball's Miami Marlins.

Bush and Jeter are competing against NY financier Wayne Rothbaum, according to the report.

Jeb, who lives in Coral Gables, is the brother of George W. Bush, who was a co-owner of the Texas Rangers from 1989-94.

The Miami Herald cited people close to the situation as saying the two men combined their bid to purchase the franchise from current owner Jeffrey Loria.

This could mean that the group might need to worry about the living more than the dead in " Fear the Walking Dead " season 3. AMC officially revealed that "Fear the Walking Dead" will return for season 4, while filming for season 3 is still underway.

Rothbaum, Jeter and Bush's top competition, has been a biotech investor for 25 years and founded Quogue Capital LLC in 2002, according to Bloomberg.

The recently married Jeter has long talked about his goal of owning a baseball team following his playing career, which finished in 2014.

The person confirmed the partnership to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday because Jeter and Bush have not commented. "In my mind he'll always be a Yankee", Girardi said. They initially had competing interests in pursuit of the team. However, they have made a decision to team up.
