Derek Jeter announced he is stepping down as CEO of the Miami Marlins, effective immediately. Do you know why? Let's have a look at the whole story.
"We had a vision five years ago to turn the Marlins franchise around, and as CEO, I have been proud to put my name and reputation on the line to make our plan a reality. Through hard work, trust and accountability, we transformed every aspect of the franchise, reshaping the workforce, and developing a long-term strategic plan for success,"
Marlins people were told Jeter is out on a conference call this am. All are said to have been in shock.
"There were likely no real philosophical differences. There were revenue promises made that didn’t come true. Jeter thought not being me was all that was needed to succeed. He could no longer blame old regime. Been too many years."
