MEGAPLEX NOTES: WILL SOX OPPONENT GILLETTE BE THE MONIKER?
Published July 5, 1995
Gillette, which has voiced opposition to the construction of a new ballpark for the Red Sox near their South Boston HQs, "could be the front-runner" for the naming rights for such a park, according to the BOSTON GLOBE's Nick Cafardo (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/2)....In the Sunday BOSTON HERALD, Peter Gelzinis notes the team's lack of popularity in South Boston. Gelzinis writes, that although it's been 77 years since the team has won a title, "it may take 177 years for the BoSox to win over Southie" (BOSTON HERALD, 7/2)....A piece in Sunday's GLOBE Business section profiles the financial commitment of Patriots Owner Robert Kraft toward the megaplex. Richard Kindleberger reports that Kraft's reluctance to commit $50M for renovation of Foxboro Stadium, but willingness to spend "over $200 million" for a dome in downtown Boston, "reflects the much greater potential he sees in the Boston project" (BOSTON GLOBE, 7/2).
