New York, NY (CBSNewYork) – Former Mets catcher Mike Piazza spoke to the media about the possibility of a buying part of a major league baseball team.

Piazza said he is currently not involved with any investors in an effort to buy a team, and that includes the New York Mets.

When asked if he would be interested in buying a stake in a Major League team as part of an investment group, Piazza said he “probably” would be.

In January the Wilpons announced they were looking to sell a non-controlling interest in the team of 20 to 25 percent to raise several hundred million dollars.

Several people, including former Mets manager Bobby Valentine and Donald Trump, have expressed interest in purchasing a share of the Mets. Piazza, however, couldn’t confirm or deny that he has been approached to be part of a group to purchase a share of the Mets.

“Let’s just say that I’ve talked to some people who have interest in getting into the game,” he added. “It doesn’t cost anything to talk, at least not yet.

“But as far as anything right now, any talks, or putting any groups together, no, I’m not involved in anything specific,” he said.
