SALT LAKE BUZZ/NEW BRITAIN OWNER HAS TO PAY $2.1M IN DAMAGES
Published November 23, 1994
An arbitrator has awarded the former Salt Lake Trappers baseball team $1.75M for being displaced by the AAA Salt Lake Buzz in '93. In an opinion announced Monday, George Nicolau ordered Buzz owner Joe Buzas to pay the Pioneer league $317,000 as well. Buzas also owns the AA Eastern League team in New Britain. The $2.1M award is more than half of what the Rockies had to pay the minor league team it displaced when it took over the Denver territory. Nicolau: "It was the Trappers that revitalized the territory to the point where it again became attractive to a Triple A team. The Trappers, a highly successful club in performance, profit and attendance, are entitled to the benefit of that effort" (AP/HARTFORD COURANT, 11/22).
