THE UNITED LEAGUE SCOUTS FOR SOME NORTHERN EXPOSURE
Published November 29, 1994
Dick Moss, one of the main organizers of the proposed United Baseball League, was in Vancouver Sunday for the CFL's Grey Cup. Moss: "Vancouver is very important to us. There's the size of the city and a wonderful community for the players to live in. But the big thing is the domed stadium is here and ready for baseball." B.C. Pavilion Corp. officials met with Moss and partner Robert Mrazek on Monday about the possible use of the facility for a UBL franchise. The facility has also been in negotiations with the Mariners to lure the Seattle franchise across the border for 8-10 games a year. Mrazek: "We think this is a great business opportunity. But the real key is each team will be a true three-way partnership between the city, the owner and the players" (Lyndon Little, VANCOUVER SUN, 11/29).
