Why Be Married? For the Fans
The San Diego Padres are up for sale, because John and Becky Moores are no longer willing to be married.
Baseball's rules require one controlling owner, and they don't have enough assets to split them without violating this rule, except by selling the team.
According to SignOnSanDiego, "The Moores met in high school history class in Texas and married in 1963. They have four adult children, including Jennifer, a minority owner of the Padres."
