SUPPORT FOR UNITED BASEBALL LEAGUE CONTINUES TO GROW
Published November 7, 1994
Support among player agents for the United Baseball League is growing, according to Murray Chass of the N.Y. TIMES. Longtime agent Tony Attansio said that he has polled his clients about the new league and they have reacted with unanimous interest: "I was shocked at the response. One hundred percent would go to the new league. ... Guys are fed up to their eyeballs with the Bud Selig-Jerry Reinsdorf nonsense." Agent Tom Reich said that the new league will be able to lure players: "I think there would be a lot of very good players who would be willing to play in the new league" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/6). In Philadelphia, Gary Miles writes, "Even though we don't give the UBL much of a shot, if it teaches the rest of baseball anything about putting the customer first, we can all be grateful" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 11/6).
