Rodriguez and business partner Marc Lore recently reached an agreement to purchase the Wolves from longtime owner Glen Taylor. Some rumors had suggested that Rodriguez himself was interested in moving the team to one particular destination.
The 14-time MLB All-Star Rodriguez is reportedly expected to begin as a limited partner before taking on full control of the Wolves in 2023. But if Rodriguez’s Instagram comment is any indication, the team will be sticking around in Minnesota for much longer than that.
