METS MAY MOVE TO BELMONT PARK; COULD TAKE JETS WITH THEM
Published June 21, 1995
Mets Co-Owner Nelson Doubleday said yesterday the club has had "discussions" with the Nassau County Sports Commission about the Mets moving to a new multi-purpose sports complex on the site of Belmont Park, according to Marty Noble of N.Y. NEWSDAY. Noble also reports that Doubleday has tried, "and may try again," to buy the Jets and eventually move them from the Meadowlands to the proposed facility. Mets VP of Business Affairs David Howard said the Mets have not "abandoned" the idea of moving to a new stadium close to Shea Stadium and is considering other sites -- "more than three in and around the New York City area." Noble notes New York's decision not to construct a monorail connecting midtown to LaGuardia, Shea Stadium, and the National Tennis Center had reduced the Mets' interest in remaining in Queens (Marty Noble, N.Y. NEWSDAY, 6/21).
