RFK STADIUM HOLDS KEY TO DC'S ENTRY INTO PROPOSED UBL
Published January 6, 1995
According to former Congressman Tom McMillen, one of the organizers of the proposed United Baseball League, a commitment from RFK Stadium is the only obstacle keeping DC from gaining a UBL franchise. McMillen, who has been busy trying to assemble a group of investors that would own a DC entry, says the "holdup" is that RFK has an "informal, exclusive agreement with the two groups seeking a [MLB] expansion franchise in Northern VA." Those agreements expire this month (Mark Maske, WASHINGTON POST, 1/6).
