HERRICK READY TO STEP UP TO PLATE FOR BLUE JAYS
Published June 19, 1995
FL-based developer Norton Herrick, who led Orlando's failed MLB expansion bid, confirmed Friday that he is interested in buying the Blue Jays and is willing to enter "immediate negotiations" with Intrebrew SA, the Belgian brewer that will assume the team along with Labatt's other entertainment holdings. Herrick, who previously had expressed interest only in the CFL Argonauts, told the TORONTO SUN: "We would be interested in purchasing both. The Argonauts, there's no real value in them to be honest, but it doesn't matter." Intrebew is believed to be asking C$190M for both teams (Gary Picknell, TORONTO SUN, 6/17).
