PIRATES BIDDERS CUT TO FOUR, SALE EXPECTED BY THANKSGIVING
Published October 27, 1994
Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy has announced that four groups remain in contention to buy the Pirates; they are headed by: Steelers President Dan Rooney, former Orioles Exec Larry Lucchino, Adelphia Communications Chair John Rigas and Florida Financier Malcolm Glazer. Murphy said he hoped to narrow the list of Pirates bidders to two within two weeks and to have a sale wrapped up by Thanksgiving: "We have a deadline and we need to move." Murphy did not disclose details of individual bids, but did say all four groups have raised the issue of a new baseball stadium. City officials indicate Rigas and Rooney are seen as front-runners (Steve Halvonik, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 10/26).
