WHITE SOX TO SWITCH LEAGUES -- FROM GRAPEFRUIT TO CACTUS
Published June 29, 1995
Representatives of the Southern AZ Sports Development Corp. have said that they have been told the White Sox "informally have agreed" to share a proposed $25M spring training facility in Tuscon with the Diamondbacks. Steve Thrush, a member of the corporation, said the Diamondbacks and White Sox have agreed to pay $300,000 a year for the new stadium's cost. Through a representative, White Sox Owner Jerry Reinsdorf said he "has had no contact or offer" to move. Diamondbacks President Jerry Colangelo, however, "did not deny" that he has reached a verbal agreement with Reinsdorf (Dan Bickley, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, 6/28).
