IS MARINERS STADIUM SUPPORT IN JEOPARDY IF JOHNSON TRADED?
Published April 18, 1995
State legislators in favor of a new retractable-roof facility for the Mariners got a boost when House representatives voted in favor of sending a stadium finance bill back to committee. State Rep. Marlin Appelwick received the needed 50 votes during a second ballot on Friday, one day after the bill was defeated in an initial vote (Joseph Turner, Tacoma MORNING NEWS TRIBUNE, 4/15). Recent reports one WA legislator believes the Mariners possible trade of ace Randy Johnson could have a negative impact on their request for state assistance (Buster Olney, Baltimore SUN, 4/17). If the Mariners stay intact and have a successful season, it "could boost local support" for a new facility (Jim Street, SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER, 4/17).
