“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,” Jeter said. “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.”
Jeter, the New York Yankees icon, took over the team’s top C-suite role in 2017. The Marlins finished in fourth place in the National League East division last year. The team made the postseason once during Jeter’s tenure, a wild card spot in 2020.
Sherman also said the team is “committed to keep investing in the future of the franchise—Marlins fans and the local community.”
The news came on a big deadline day for MLB. Owners gave the players union until Monday to agree to a new labor deal—or Opening Day and potentially other games would be canceled.
