Major League Baseball owners will vote Friday on the sale of the New York Mets to billionaire Steve Cohen.
The proposed purchase of 95% of the Mets by an entity of Cohen was already approved by MLB's ownership committee. Cohen needs 23 of the 30 clubs to sign off for the deal to be completed.
The Mets are valued at $2.4 billion to $2.5 billion.
The current Mets ownership group is headed by Fred Wilpon, brother-in-law Saul Katz and Wilpon's son Jeff, the team's chief operating officer. The Wilpon and Katz families would retain 5% of the team.
