AN OLD IDEA FROM TWO FAMILIAR NAMES
Published September 21, 1994
Lawyer/promoter Donald Regan and Gary Davidson yesterday announced that they are "intensely interested" in establishing a new baseball league, to be stocked with baseball's striking players and to begin play next spring. Regan and Davidson together founded the American Basketball Association, the World Hockey Association and the World Football League. Regan: "Now is the time to do it because of the strike and the fact that there may not be a 1995 season. The opportunities are mind-boggling." Regan dismissed speculation that a new league would be "hard- pressed" to find available stadiums. Regan said that MLB owners would not be able to shut a rival league out of municipally owned facilities: "Municipally owned stadiums, by law, must operate on a competing-bid basis" (William Houston, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 9/21).
