BASEBALL HELD HOSTAGE -- DAY 82: HARRINGTON BACKS MITCHELL
Published November 1, 1994
Red Sox CEO John Harrington, last night said he would support retiring Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell as the next MLB Commissioner. Mitchell, who met with BOSTON HERALD editors yesterday, said he has talked with many owners, including Harrington, about the job and would consider it if offered (Joe Giulotti, BOSTON HERALD, 11/1). METS THREATS: Less than a week after Met players Bobby Bonilla and John Franco made "threatening comments about the fate other players faced if they became strike breakers next spring," MLB's labor relations committee filed an unfair labor practice charge against the two. MLBPA General Counsel Gene Orza said Bonilla and Franco should not have made the comments: "I understand the frustration which leads them to say such things, if they said it, but it remains the wrong thing to have said" (Murray Chass, N.Y. TIMES, 11/1).
