Martin Luther King III

Atlanta — Martin Luther King III invoked the spirit of his late father as he confirmed his involvement in discussions to purchase a part of the New York Mets.

In a late-night statement released to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Sunday, King said that he hoped that the venture, if successful, would increase diversity among the owners in professional sports.

Major league baseball has no African-American owners.

“I believe in the merit and American value of creating an example,” King said in the statement, “and if I personally, or as part of a collective, can advance the vision of a more diverse ownership group in professional sports, domestically or internationally, then, like my father, I am prepared to act in that spirit.”

He added, “There has been a lot of discussion and speculation about my participation in the acquisition of the New York Mets. The public release of those discussions was premature.”
