OAKLAND COUNCIL APPROVES A'S CONCESSIONS
Published July 21, 1995
After airing "frustrations about long negotiations," Alameda County supervisors approved $11M in payments to the A's to "appease" the team's future owners, writes Sandy Kleffman in today's SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. The supervisors also agreed to advance the team up to $2.5M and allow them to terminate their lease at the end of '98 for any reason. Kleffman reports that it is still "unclear" whether these moves will ease concerns of prospective owners Kenneth Hofmann and Stephen Schott (SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 7/21).
