BOSTON MAYOR CALLS FOR REEBOK TO TAKE OVER FENWAY
Published August 22, 1995
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino yesterday suggested "that if the Red Sox eventually leave Fenway Park, the ballpark might serve as the location for the corporate headquarters of Reebok," according to this morning's BOSTON GLOBE. Menino said Fenway "would make a great campus" for the company, which is currently based in Stoughton, MA. Menino, who said he had not discussed the idea with Reebok officials, said a Reebok-Fenway deal would give the company "a great showcase," while "maintaining the agricultural integrity" of Fenway. However, Menino "signaled" that keeping the Sox at Fenway could be his first priority. Don Aucoin writes that the Mayor "may urge the Red Sox to take another look at an earlier city proposal -- already spurned by the club -- to expand Fenway Park in its existing location." The team is in favor of replacing Fenway with a ballpark in South Boston (BOSTON GLOBE, 8/22).
