THE BOSS SAYS SLOW TICKET SALES FOR YANKS ARE DUE TO STADIUM
Published April 24, 1995
George Steinbrenner blamed slow ticket sales on Yankee Stadium, reaffirming that "baseball economics will force the Yankees to move out of their permanent home before long." Citing the fact that the Orioles have already sold close to 3 million tickets while his team has only sold 890,000, Steinbrenner said "for the Yankees to continue to be leaders in the pursuit of free agents, they will have to move out of Yankee Stadium." Steinbrenner: "It's the stadium. Look what's happening in Cleveland, too. Texas, Chicago. They've got a great thing going in Denver." Steinbrenner will meet with NY state officials "soon" to discuss possible sites for a new stadium (Tom Keegan, N.Y. POST, 4/24).
