HARRINGTON SAYS CELTICS WON'T FIND RED SOX IN THEIR STOCKING
Published December 20, 1994
Red Sox CEO John Harrington denied a weekend N.Y. TIMES report that the Celtics are looking into a possible purchasing of the Red Sox. Saying there "is no truth to the story," Harrington said, "The shares of the Yawkey estate are not for sale. When they are, everyone will know about it at the same time." The newspaper reported that the Boston Celtics Limited Partnership, with new-found assets and a desire to diversify, may be interested in acquiring the Red Sox to gain a strong hold on the Boston sports market. Celtics Chair Paul Gaston would not comment on the TIMES story (May & McDonough, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/19).
