A'S OFFERED AN ESCAPE CLAUSE IN LEASE WITH RAIDERS' RETURN
Published July 14, 1995
The Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum board agreed earlier this week to allow potential A's owners Steven Schott and Kenneth Hofman to terminate their lease in '98 if renovations do not go as planned and the club continues to lose money, according to the S.F. CHRONICLE. Oakland Coliseum President George Vukasin: "We're very comfortable with that three-year window because these people bought the team because they want to keep it in the East Bay, not just make money" (Peter Fimrite, S.F. CHRONICLE, 7/13).
