Justin Timberlake is part of group wanting to bring MLB to Nashville

The group is made up of other entertainers, businessmen, and a former MLB executive.

MEMPHIS, Tenn — Justin Timberlake wants to bring Major League Baseball to Tennessee.

The Millington native is part of a big money ownership group trying to bring a pro team to Nashville. The group is made up of other entertainers, businessmen, and a former MLB executive.

Dave Dombrowski won a world series with the Boston Red Sox back in 2018 and would likely be a major player on the team if it chooses to come to Tennessee.

Timberlake already owns a small piece of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Ten-time Grammy award winner Justin Timberlake cast his lot Wednesday with Music City Baseball, the group gaining momentum in its effort to bring a Major League Baseball franchise to Nashville. The team's name will be the Nashville Stars and it's difficult to imagine a bigger star than Timberlake joining the mix.
