THESE MARINERS ARE UNWELCOME AT THE PORT OF SEATTLE
Published December 15, 1994
The Port of Seattle told a committee charged with studying the possibilities of a new stadium for the Mariners that it "wants little to do with paying for a ballpark." The Port said it has budgeted every available dollar for the next five years and has "a lengthy wish list should more money become available." Port Commission President Pat Davis said baseball is not on that list: "It would be a hard stretch to find where a new stadium would fit into our mission statement." The committee will hold a final meeting January 11 before King County Executive Gary Locke reviews its findings. Expected to be in the report -- 35-45% private financing with the public paying the remaining costs, but no agreement on a domed, retractable dome or open-air ballpark (Larry LaRue, Tacoma NEWS TRIBUNE, 12/13).
