Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and Republican presidential nominee, is interested in purchasing a minority stake in the New York Yankees.
According to FanRag Sports, Romney and his son Tagg are prepared to offer between $25 and $30 million for each percentage point of the team's shares.
The Romneys have been trying to buy their way into MLB for several years. With no opportunity to secure a stake in the Red Sox, Romney has had to look elsewhere.
He showed an interest in purchasing the Dodgers before the franchise was sold to the Guggenheim partners for $2.15 billion.
A group led by Mitt was said to be a potential buyer for the Miami Marlins, but those talks appear to have petered out.
Romney, worth an estimated $250 million per Forbes, was an investor in the Yankees from 2007 to 2012.
