STATUS OF PADRES DEAL UNCLEAR
Published September 12, 1994
In Baltimore, Tom Keegan reports that former Orioles president Larry Lucchino, organizing a group to purchase the San Diego Padres, is close to closing the deal. Lucchino will not have to invest any money, but in return for brokering the deal, he will become the Padres president and be granted a small equity in the team (Baltimore SUN, 9/11). Sources in San Diego dispute the report saying that no movement is expected by the three potential buyers as long as the strike continues (DAILY sources, 9/11).
