The Mets have revealed that allegedly funny TV host Bill Maher is a part owner of the Mets.
Maher was at Citi Field on Sunday, where he and Jeff Wilpon confirmed that Maher bought at least one of the shares of the team that were for sale this past winter.
“I think it’s a great investment,” Maher said. “I think it’s a great team that I’ve been rooting for since they came into existence, which was soon after I came into existence.”
The Mets have said that they sold 12 shares for $20 million each. Each share is worth 4% of the team. Maher is the only person who has been identified as a buyer, aside from the Mets cable-TV partners.
