VIRGINIA GROUP ANTICIPATES MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL BY '96
Published September 11, 1995
William Collins, who leads a group of investors from Northern VA looking to bring MLB to the area, says baseball should arrive soon, according to USA TODAY. Collins: "I've told people in our organization to plan for us beginning play here in 1996." Collins is targeting the Pirates, who last week gave newspaper heir Kevin McClatchy 10 days to come up with an ownership plan to keep the team in Pittsburgh. Collins, on the Pirates ownership group and his plans: "They've exhausted their alternatives. We have people here who can write checks for $80 to $100 million tomorrow" (Ben Brown, USA TODAY, 9/11). In Boston, Peter Gammons notes that there are "interested parties" in Orlando, but the NL doesn't want the Pirates to move there, as it would over-saturate FL and hurt the Devil Rays before they even start playing (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/10).
