SCHOTT THREATENS TO TAKE REDS TO BLUEGRASS COUNTRY
Published November 7, 1994
Reds Owner Marge Schott said she met with NL President Leonard Coleman on Thursday and discussed the possibility of moving the club to another city. Schott said she believes the city has made a "substantial effort" to keep the Bengals from relocating, but no effort to satisfy her demands for the Reds: "I hope I don't have to leave Cincinnati, but if I do, so be it." Schott would not identify possible sites for relocation, other than to say that nearby Northern KY is among them. Schott said that Coleman was supportive during their meeting in Cincinnati (AP/Mult., 11/5). SCHOTT IN THE DARK? In Cincinnati, Tim Sullivan writes, "Schott sends out more signals than a television satellite, but she is not too difficult to de-scramble. Her latest threat to move the team is a transparent attempt to extract concessions. ... The Cincinnati Reds deserve a stage worthy of their tradition, and their prominent place in this community, and they can almost certainly get one if their owner starts acting reasonable" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 11/5).
