Phil Mickelson has joined a group hoping to purchase the San Diego Padres. And according to Mickelson, he will be more than just a pretty face.
In a report by Tim Sullivan of the San Diego Union-Tribune, Mickelson, who will be contributing “a lot” of his own money, has joined the group that includes the family of Peter O’Malley, who owned the Los Angeles Dodgers for nearly 50 years.
Mickelson explained his desire to purchase the franchise, noting that he grew up a Padres fan but that in recent years he felt “disassociated with the organisation a little bit as a fan” and that he doesn’t “identify with the players.”
