Remember back in April when Nintendo of America announced it was selling the Mariners? That sale is expected to be approved by the rest of the team owners on Thursday.
The Associated Press added some details about the sale on Wednesday:
Nintendo, which took control of the team from Jeff Smulyan in 1992, is selling all but 10 percent of its stake in the franchise and the regional sports network ROOT Sports.
The Mariners will not have a majority owner. Rather 17 investors, including John Stanton, set to take over as the club's CEO, will serve as minority owners. It's unclear how -- or if -- this will impact the Mariners heading forward.
The M's entered Wednesday three games back of the Orioles and Red Sox the wild card standings.
