St. John’s University alum Mike Repole is reportedly partnering with Alex Rodriquez and Jennifer Lopez to purchase the New York Mets.

The Queens kid is trying to buy his hometown team.

Darren Rovell of The Action Network reported on Monday morning that St. John’s University alum Mike Repole is teaming up with former MLB star Alex Rodriquez and his finances and mega-music star Jennifer Lopez in an attempt to purchase the New York Mets.

Repole, an entrepreneur who is known for founding VitaminWater and BodyArmor, is also the owner of the horse racing barn Repole Stable, which has the colors blue and orange, for his beloved New York Mets.

Rodriquez, the former star with the New York Yankees, currently works for ESPN and FOX as a MLB analyst and owns his own company A-Rod Corp as the former All-Star’s net-worth is valued at $350 million.

A-Rod’s fiancé, Jennifer Lopez, or J-Lo, has a net-worth of $400 million as the Grammy nominated star has sold over 70 million records in her illustrious career.

The 51-year old Repole also made an appearance on Mike’s On with Mike Francesa, a fellow St, John’s alum, last spring when the Red Storm was in the process of hiring a new men’s basketball coach and lit a flame through President Conrado “Bobby” Gempesaw and Vice President Joe Oliva.

As a booster, Repole was willing to write a large check to the school in order to pay for the buyout of Arizona State head coach Bobby Hurley and bring him to Queens, but after that fell through the program was lucky that Mike Anderson fell into its lap.

Since the hiring of Anderson, Repole has been very quiet regarding his alma mater and was not seen often, if at all, during the 2019-20 season.

The Mets are currently owned by Fred Wilpon and family, who had a deal to sell the franchise to billionaire Steve Cohen, but the deal fell through in early February.

Cohen is still a contender to buy the franchise as the Mets and Major League Baseball drag their feet through the mud with the sale of the team and the start of the 2020 MLB season.

Mike Repole’s net-worth is around $1 billion and one of his best horses, Vino Rosso, most recently won the $6 million Breeders Cup Classic in November.
