STEINBRENNER SAYS HE IS NOT READY TO LEAVE THE BRONX
Published January 24, 1995
Yankees Owner George Steinbrenner has rejected parts of the city's $380M plan to "keep the team in the Bronx," according to a report in this morning's N.Y. POST. City officials have since formulated a new plan and submitted it back to Steinbrenner, but no details of the proposal were released. Steinbrenner dismissed a report in this week's NEW YORK OBSERVER that he has decided "to abandon the Bronx" and had met secretly with officials at the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority. Through a spokesperson, Steinbrenner said: "We haven't made up our minds yet as to what we will do." Steinbrenner met yesterday with city officials, including NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, about the city's proposal (David Seifman, N.Y. POST, 1/24).
