Tom Glavine may make pitch to buy the Miami Marlins

Braves great Tom Glavine could be pulling for a different team soon. And he might be going up against Derek Jeter again too.

According to Bloomberg News, the Hall of Fame pitcher is part of a group bidding to buy the Miami Marlins.

Glavine has reportedly joined a group led by Solamere Capital co-founder Tagg Romney.

Jeter, the retired New York Yankees star, is also among others interested in acquiring the Marlins.

The 51-year-old Glavine won 305 games in the majors, including two stints with the Braves. He pitched for Atlanta from 1987 to 2002, but left as a free agent and played five seasons for the Braves’ rival New York Mets. He returned to the Braves for one season in 2008 before retiring.
