Derek Jeter announces that he’s stepping away from the Miami Marlins, will no longer serve as their CEO

Written by Doug Rush

For the last five years, Hall of Fame shortstop Derek Jeter has been the CEO for the Miami Marlins.

But that officially ended today, as Jeter announced that he is stepping away and ending his tenure as the Marlins CEO and shareholder with the franchise,

He states that the vision he had for the team five years ago as the owner is not the same the franchise has now, which is part of him leaving.

Jeter was used to being a part of a winning culture being that he spent 20 years with the New York Yankees, won five World Series in seven attempts with them and was used to always competing for the postseason.

The Marlins made the postseason once in 2020 and did win a playoff series, but other than that, Miami hasn’t done much with Jeter there.

It’ll be curious to see if Jeter tries to do something else in baseball, or if he will simply go back home to help raise his three daughters with his wife.
