GIANT FAN FILES SUIT OVER REPLACEMENTS, GETS AIR TIME
Published February 15, 1995
Rafeal Trujillo, a Giants season-ticket holder, has sued the team over its policy requiring full payment for tickets "in a season that may feature replacement players." Season-ticket holders who fail to pay and renew their tickets will lose their seats. Trujillo's attorneys said they will ask for a court order prohibiting the Giants from demanding full payment for replacement games (Dennis Opartnry, S.F. EXAMINER, 2/15). The "CBS Evening News" and ABC's "World News Tonight" both profiled Trujillo's suit. S.F. Board of Supervisors member Angela Alioto said the board will "probably, with a unanimous vote, say 'it [replacement baseball] is not going to happen at Candlestick Park'" (CBS, 2/14). ABC's Brian Rooney profiled Trujillo and the policy of MLB teams who ask their season ticket holders to pay up or lose their seats. Rooney said fans are also suing in New York, Miami and Dallas (ABC, 2/14).
