RED SOX WILL COMPENSATE LOCAL TV STATION FOR AIRING GAMES
Published March 16, 1995
Red Sox Broadcast Dir Jim Healey said the team is willing to "compensate" WSBK-TV for financial difficulty related to airing games with replacement games. Healey said the Sox know that WSBK "has been badly hurt" by the strike, but that the station has not refused to air its four remaining exhibition telecasts. However, the station has not yet confirmed that it will air them. WSBK is in the final year of a 5-year deal with the team and is due to pay the Sox $17M for '95 (Jim Baker, BOSTON HERALD, 3/15).
