ANGELS GETTING CLOSE ON NEW STADIUM
Published March 3, 1995
Angels President Richard Brown met with Anaheim City Manager Jim Ruth and Stadium Manager Greg Smith this week and "reported progress and optimism" towards an agreement on a new stadium. Brown: "It's never a done deal until it's done. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. But during negotiations (Thursday) I think she was heard gargling." Ruth also said after the meetings that "he would be surprised if an agreement isn't reached within two weeks." Meanwhile, the Rams, who previously controlled the boxes, gave the Angels "approval" to start selling the luxury boxes at Anaheim Stadium. Brown reports that sales of the boxes "should pick up after an agreement is reached on a new stadium" (Jeff Miller, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 3/3).
