PIRATES' SALE MAY BE DELAYED UNTIL THE OFFSEASON
Published August 7, 1995
Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy said Friday the Pirates may not be sold until the offseason. Murphy believes both Kevin McClatchy, the California newspaper heir who met with Pirates officials for the third time this week, and Adelphia Cable Chair John Rigas are thought to be delaying action on the purchase of the team because of "baseball's unsettled economic climate." McClatchy did not make a formal offer during his last round of talks, but hinted one could be forthcoming. NL President Len Coleman sate with McClatchy during the Pirates game on Thursday, "touching off speculation that Coleman was trying to convince McClatchy to make a bid" (AP/Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/5).
