MITCHELL OUT OF RUNNING FOR BASEBALL COMMISSIONER?
Published December 2, 1994
George Mitchell's appointment as President Clinton's special adviser on economic development in Ireland "may be a temporary job" but it appears that he is "no longer in line to be baseball commissioner. Mitchell has indicated to friends that he and owners have "drifted apart and they will have to begin another search process." Asked if former Democratic National Chair Paul Kirk would be considered for the position, one owner said that if a labor agreement is made, the search process will start over, possibly with the players involved in the search process (Peter Gammons, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/2). Mitchell assumes the position on January 10, 1995 (White House).
