Even if you aren’t a baseball fan you know who Derek Jeter is. You know he was the Yankee shortstop and that’s how he will always be remembered. But now that’s he is retired Jeter is still involved with baseball as the new owner and CEO of the Miami Marlins.
There are even these photos of Jeter in his new office. Have a look.

And there’s also this one:
“The next era of Marlins baseball begins now.”

And Jeter actually wrote a letter. Here’s what he said:
Today is the first day of a new era for Marlins baseball. On behalf of the new ownership group, I want to tell you about our vision for the future.
I’ve never been big on making predictions. I’ve always had a “no excuses” mentality in everything I do, and I believe hard work and discipline are rewarded over time. So I won’t make any predictions, but I will make a few promises
And that’s all fine and dandy. But people on Twitter were just focused on poking fun at Jeter trying to look like an owner. Here are some of the best responses.
“What would you do if you owned the @Marlins?”

I love Jeets, but odds are he’ll be using that 2nd iPad to watch old Bell Biv Devoe videos on YouTube and not the Yankee game

Well, good luck, Jeet.
