UEBERROTH AT HEAVEN'S GATE? HE WANTS TO BE TOP ANGEL
Published November 4, 1994
Peter Ueberroth is reportedly one of the leading candidates to become minority owner and managing general partner of the Angels. The former commissioner, one of six Angel board members, "refused to discuss his interest." Bob Nightengale of the L.A. TIMES writes Ueberroth "might try to buy the club with the assistance of powerful Orange County businessman, George Argyros. Argyros, former owner of the Seattle Mariners, reportedly is worth at least $250 million." Angel co-owner Jackie Autry has suspended talks with prospective owners until the strike is settled. Autry: "It's premature for me to speculate what will happen. There are just too many unknowns. ... Peter has other things to worry about than this right now" (L.A. TIMES, 11/4).
