Derek Jeter Reportedly Forgoing Entire Miami Marlins Salary amid Coronavirus Pandemic

People.com —

Derek Jeter has been the CEO and part owner of the Miami Marlins since 2017

Derek Jeter is forgoing his entire salary indefinitely as CEO of the Miami Marlins amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sports Grid’s Craig Mish first reported on Twitter Monday.

A source told ESPN that Jeter, 45, shared the news with team employees during a conference call Monday. He reportedly told baseball ops on the call that they will be paid through at least May 31.

Other members of the Marlins’ executive team also agreed to take pay cuts, ESPN reported.

Jeter reportedly makes $5 million a year as Marlins CEO. He’s served as both CEO and part-owner of the Florida-based team since September 2017, three years after he retired from the Yankees.

A rep for Jeter has not responded to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, spring training for the MLB’s 2020 season was suspended in early March, while Opening Day — originally slated for March 26 — was pushed back indefinitely.

Whew! How much is his salary? I need to change professions. (lol)
