RED SOX READY TO BID FENS ADIEU?
Published November 11, 1994
Red Sox Exec VP John Buckley said yesterday that the Red Sox are willing to invest money in a coordinated plan that would tie together a downtown convention complex and a new baseball park. Buckley: "We've told every government official who has wanted to talk to us that we have to deal with the 82-year-old facility we have. But we seem to end up on the backburner as something to be dealt with later." Buckley said that the Red Sox have "all but ruled out rebuilding Fenway Park" because of prohibitive costs. Buckley added that the team was "disappointed" that last month's Boston Redevelopment Authority report on a new convention center and football stadium did not deal with the prospect of a baseball facility: "We are anxious to sit down as a developer/private investor to ensure baseball's future in the city of Boston, which should not be taken for granted." In a related development, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said that he would be willing to discuss a downtown stadium proposal (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 11/11).
