FRIDAY IS DEADLINE FOR LOCAL BUYERS IN A'S SALE
Published November 30, 1994
Sacramento businessmen Fred Anderson and Kevin McClatchy are in the process of preparing a bid for the A's. Friday is the deadline to find a local buyer for the team, and Anderson said, "I suspect we're going to put together some sort of formal offer." Andersen, 70 is the President of Pacific Coast Building Products and Owner of the CFL's Sacramento Gold-Miners. McClatchy, 31, is heir to the McClatchy newspaper "empire." If there are no offers by Friday, the current owners, the Haas family, have an "option to raise the (purchase) price and pursue outside buyers not bound to keep the team in Oakland. They could also switch to a year-to-year lease with the Oakland Coliseum." Anderson was hopeful his group would make a bid by Friday (Larry Stone, SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER, 11/30).
