MIKE ILITCH WILL LOBBY STATE FOR NEW TIGERS' STADIUM
Published October 12, 1994
Tigers owner Mike Ilitch said he will personally lobby MI lawmakers to help finance a new baseball stadium. Ilitch: "I'll do whatever is required." Ilitch said his proposal last spring for a new stadium failed because it was thrust too suddenly on the public. Ilitch said he was surprised by the "severity" of the criticism directed at him during the stadium debate. He said that this time, he will be better prepared: "I'll be ready to deal with it like a political issue. Ilitch has gone outside his public relations staffs at the Tigers and Little Caesars Pizza and hired the firm Bassett & Bassett to promote the new stadium proposal (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/12).
