PITTSBURGH MAYOR MEETS WITH CA BUSINESSMAN ABOUT PIRATES
Published June 28, 1995
CA newspaper heir Kevin McClatchy said yesterday that he is interested in buying the Pirates and keeping them in Pittsburgh, but that he would "insist on a new baseball stadium," according to today's PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE. After a meeting with McClatchy, Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy said McClatchy and his investors "might submit a preliminary offer in a week or so." McClatchy made no such prediction (Halvonik & Belko, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 6/28). City Council President Jim Ferio is reportedly "frustrated by new snags" in sale talks and said that it was time for Pittsburgh to "kiss big-league baseball goodbye." Ferlo criticized Pirates Chair Vincent Sarni saying he has "shown nothing but bad faith from the beginning" in efforts to find new owners committed to keeping the team in Pittsburgh (Schmitz & Halvonik, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE, 6/28).
