Billionaire Mike Repole reportedly joins Alex Rodriguez, Jennifer Lopez Mets bid

Alex Rodriguez

We now know who the major investor is behind Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez’s bid to purchase the New York Mets.

According to Darren Rovell of The Action Network, billionaire Mike Repole, a lifelong Mets fan, is involved in the Rodriguez-Lopez bid as a general partner.

Repole is the co-founder of Glaceau, which went on to produce the well-known Vitaminwater brand. After selling Glaceau for $4.1 billion in 2007, he co-founded another sports drink company, known for producing BodyArmor. He is also a thoroughbred owner who runs Repole Stables.

We heard recently that Rodriguez and Lopez were having success finding some investors for a prospective bid. Repole appears to be a big part of that bid, and could boost the group’s chances of successfully buying the team.
