METS REPORTEDLY STAYING PUT -- WITH A NEW STADIUM
Published August 31, 1995
Mets Owner Fred Wilpon says the team is planning to stay in Flushing now that the city and state "have launched serious discussions" about building a new domed ballpark to replace Shea Stadium, according to Charles Gasparino of NEWSDAY. Wilpon said that he met with the city's Deputy Mayor for Finance John Dyson last week and discussed plans to build a natural-grass stadium with a retractable dome as well as a privately funded "interactive, virtual reality world's fair." Wilpon said one way of financing will be "an independent authority to float bonds" (NEWSDAY, 8/31).
