During Jeffrey Loria's time as a Major League Baseball owner, he's rarely been called anything close to an ambassador-for the game, fans of the Miami Marlins, fellow owners or the players.
Loria, a NY art dealer who donated at least $125,000 to President Donald Trump during the campaign, is reportedly in talks to sell the team to a group that includes Joshua Kushner, the brother of Trump son-in-law and top adviser Jared Kushner. He gave $125,000 to the Trump Victory super-political action committee in 2016 in addition to a $2,700 contribution to Trump's campaign.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly said recent reports of the team's potential sale and owner Jeffrey Loria perhaps becoming USA ambassador to France are not a distraction.
