GOV. EDWARDS SAYS ZEPHYRS SOLD TO LOCAL GROUP
Published January 24, 1995
LA Governor Edwin Edwards said an annoucement would be made this week regarding the purchase of the Class AAA Zephyrs by a "local group." Edwards would not reveal the name of the buyers, but New Orleans attorney Rob Couhig has been attempting to purchase the team from current owner John Dikeou. The two reportedly met last week in Denver. The Zephyrs are scheduled to move into a $20M, 10,000 seat stadium to be built in Metairie in time for the '96 season. The team sale, for a "minor-league record" $8.5M, reportedly has been on and off for months (Peter Barrouquere, New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 1/21).
