AUTRY FAMILY CAN'T "STOMACH" GAME, WILL SELL TO UEBERROTH
Published March 27, 1995
Angels Owner Jackie Autry said this weekend that she and her husband, Gene, don't "have the stomach to deal" with the "pressures" of baseball and will sell a minority interest in the team to former MLB commissioner Peter Ueberroth. The labor dispute, "media criticism," and the "rising cost" were among Autry's reasons. Jackie Autry: "If I could just be an owner and deal with what happens between the white lines, it would be a perfect world." Ueberroth is in the process of buying 25% of the team with an option to buy the remaining 75% upon the death of Gene Autry, 87. Ueberroth will also take over as managing general partner and handle the day-to-day operations of the club. Autry attended her first exhibition game on Friday and said she "wasn't particularly thrilled about seeing replacement players" (Mike DiGiovanna, L.A. TIMES, 3/26).
