Former New York Yankees shortstop and Hall of Famer Derek Jeter stepped down from the Chief Executive Officer position of the Miami Marlins on Monday, February 28th, 2022.

“Today I am announcing that the Miami Marlins and I are officially ending our relationship and I will no longer serve as CEO nor as a shareholder in the club,” Jeter said in a press release. “The vision for the future of the franchise is different than the one I signed up to lead. Now is the right time for me to step aside as a new season begins.”

The Marlins also made a statement regarding Jeter’s resignation. “The Miami Marlins and Derek Jeter announced today that they have agreed to officially end their relationship. The Marlins thank Derek for his many contributions and wish him luck in his future endeavors,” said Bruce Sherman, Miami Marlins owner.

Jeter’s resignation was suprising for sure, but that is somewhat to be expected as the Marlins have been performing badly under Jeter’s leadership. The franchise has been on a losing streak under Jeter’s five-year-long tenure.

The only time they managed to make the playoff was during the shortened 2020 season.
