Potential New York Mets owner Mike Repole has a net worth of around $1 billion
This truly is a game-changer. And, it shows just how serious Rodriguez and Lopez are about their ownership group taking charge. Money is never going to be a problem for their newest partner too. Repole has a net worth of around $1 billion, as he’s the founder of Repole Stables. He’s also the co-founder of BodyArmor SuperDrink.
Being from Queens, it’s been a dream of Repole’s to see his Mets get back to their winning ways. With him, Rodriguez and Lopez teaming up, there very well could be a monster change coming to the organization.
For now, all we can do is wait and see if things end up going through here. However, a shockwave has been sent through the MLB world with the latest news of Repole being ready to back J-Lo and A-Rod with a big-time investment.
All signs are pointing to the Mets having new owners in the near future. Will Rodriguez and Lopez see all their hard work and effort pay off?
