SACRAMENTO BUSINESSMEN CONSIDER PURCHASE OF A'S
Published October 28, 1994
Sacramento businessmen Kevin McClatchy and Fred Anderson yesterday confirmed reports that they are interested in purchasing the Athletics. But the two businessmen denied that they have any intention of bringing the club to Sacramento. Earlier yesterday, Sacramento Mayor Joe Serna pledged that the city would build a new baseball stadium if the two men were successful in purchasing the A's. Anderson, who is part-owner of the Kings and owner of the CFL's Sacramento Gold Miners, said that he has had trouble with Sacramento officials in the past and would therefore not be interested in bringing the A's to the city: "I've given up on Sacramento." Anderson said he would like to couple a purchase of the A's with moving the Gold Miners to the Oakland Coliseum. Sources have confirmed that at least four and as many as six other groups have received permission from the American League to look at the A's books (John Hickey, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 10/28).
