Jennifer Lopez excited for possibility of creating baseball history


The Love Don't Cost a Thing hitmaker and her fiance retired NY Yankees ace Alex Rodriguez, are a part of an investment group vying to require over the main League Baseball franchise from its current owners, the Wilpon family.

J.Lo has no updates to supply fans on the continued negotiations, but admitted the thought of becoming the primary woman - and a Latina at that - during a high-powered role at the Mets would be an enormous move, not only for herself, except for MLB bosses, too, as there are currently, no females listed as principal team owners.

Appearing on Barstool Sports' The Corp podcast, the singer and actress said: "Listen, during this day and age, that might be something that might be so amazing."

She continued: "I think in every field, especially in institutions like big-league Baseball that are so American during this moment in time, it's important for diversity and it's important for ladies to possess positions of power that they've earned and deserve and may contribute during a way that's even as good as any man on the earth ."

J.Lo and A-Rod, who abandoned a previous effort with different investors in May, are presently working with current and retired National league stars like Travis Kelce, Brian Urlacher, Joe Thomas, and DeMarco Murray, and basketball players including Bradley Beal and Mason Plumlee.

They have made an initial $1.7 billion (£1.3 billion) bid for the Mets, but face stiff competition from hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen, who has reportedly stepped up his earlier $2 billion (£1.5 billion) offer to $2.6 billion (£2 billion) in an effort to secure the acquisition.
