Mets Owner Fred Wilpon lost a reported $700 million in the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme fraud.
Fred Wilpon (born November 22, 1936Bensonhurst, Brooklyn) is a real estate developer, baseball executive and the majority owner of the New York Mets.
Wilpon bought a one-percent stake in the Mets in 1980, when Charles Shipman Payson sold the team, with Doubleday & Co. holding the remaining interest.
